Senate Roll Call on 2011 Senate Bill 5581
The problem with Washington State nursing homes lies more with over regulation than underfunding. Allowing competition, rather than siphoning off dollars from other essential services would better serve the public.
I am urging all Legislatures to SUPPORT Senate Bill 5581.
We need to protect our most vulnerable residents, and jobs to caregivers.
We need to stop all these cuts NOW!
PLEASE! support this bill.
