Bills to Lift the Caps in Danger – Call Now

The state Assembly postponed a vote yesterday on the bills lifting the Family Care/IRIS caps until Tuesday, March 13. Next week is the final week the Assembly and Senate will be in session for the rest of the entire year. If these bills don’t pass next week, the caps will remain in place until at least 2013.

Since both Assembly Bill 477 and Senate Bill 380 were amended by the Committee on Aging and Long-Term Care, both houses must pass the bills by next week.

Please call your state representative and state senator and urge them to pass the bills. Use the AARP toll-free number (1-800-844-2847) to make your calls.

Thank you for your continued advocacy on this critical issue!
