Assembly Representative Mark Born moves to take Long-Term Care Changes out of the Budget
Assembly Representative Mark Born-R, Beaver Dam, has introduced a motion that would take the changes to Family Care, IRIS and Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs) out of the 2015-17 Biennial Budget. In his words: 'The governor's budget proposes wide-ranging changes to the current Family Care, IRIS, and ADRC programs. These proposed changes affect thousands of individuals across the state. I have heard from groups and constituents who are concerned with the lack of details and clear plan brought forward leaving them unable to prepare for any changes. I am introducing this motion because these proposed changes need further research by the Department of Health Services (DHS), as well as more input from stakeholders to better understand how they will affect participants, their families, and the state.'
