With several news outlets now calling the presidency for former Vice President Joe Biden, what can those across senior living expect from his Administration?
Argentum continues to focus on COVID-19 and educating federal officials about the importance of processing relief payments, obtaining additional financial resources and testing support, preparing vaccine management, and instituting reasonable liability protections. These issues will continue to be at the forefront of our advocacy efforts with both a new Congress and a Biden Administration.
According to many major analysts, controlling the pandemic was likely a top priority for Biden voters. As we all know, COVID-19 has catapulted senior living into the spotlight, and we can expect new legislative proposals and executive actions to exercise further control of the industry. However, Argentum is committed to combatting efforts to increase onerous regulation and federal oversight from both sides of the aisle. Because most of the legislation introduced to regulate the industry is led by Democrats, a divided Congress may prove helpful in our efforts to prevent overly burdensome regulation to the industry. Additionally, as discussions begin in the lame duck session for a new COVID-19 relief package, Argentum will continue its fight for meaningful and reasonable liability protections.
Argentum is acutely aware that it is not enough to be at the table for these discussions; the industry needs to set the table for those conversations and stand ready to react and respond accordingly. At Argentum, we are continuing to invest in government relations efforts, building upon our strong foundation and creating new avenues to share our messages. We have never been in a better position to advocate for the interests of the residents, staff, and families who depend on us.
