2017 Legislation Update

The Best Life Alliance 2017 legislation has had a busy few weeks! Continue to contact your elected official to support bill HF 873 and SF 669

Legislation Update

The Best Life Alliance 2017 legislation has had a busy few weeks. Our bill, HF 873 and SF 669 , was heard in the Senate Human Services Reform Committee on 2/13 and will move ahead after the fiscal note, the cost of the bill, is determined. Our bill was also heard in the House Health and Human Services Reform Committee on 2/14 and was passed on to the House Health and Human Services Finance Committee.

At both hearings, Best Life Alliance representatives provided very compelling testimony about the need for a wage increase to address the workforce shortage and instability in Home & Community-Based Services. Thank you to everyone for responding to our action alert related to these hearings. We will keep you updated as future hearings are scheduled.

New Handouts

Our 2017 Best Life Alliance Fact Sheet and Infographic are now available and provide a great overview of the need for our legislation. Please share them with legislators, your co-workers, family members, and other supporters.

Updates from the Capitol

We expect an updated state forecast will be released 2/28, which will show projections of the status of the state's finances. Additionally, the Office of the Legislative Auditor released their report on financing of Home and Community Based Services.

ARRM Day at the Capitol

As a reminder, ARRM Day at the Capitol is Tuesday, March 14, with a rally at 10:00 am in the Capitol Rotunda. The rally will focus on support for the Best Life Alliance and a wage increase for direct care workers. I look forward to seeing you there as we rally together - help us fill the Rotunda!
