2018 GACCP Legislative Update: January 23, 2018
Monday, January 8th, was the beginning of the 2018 Legislative Session. The General Assembly returned to the state capitol facing many important issues as well as the challenge of election year politics.
Georgia continues to remain the best state in which to do business in the country. Some efforts the Legislature plans to address this year are to assure broadband access across Georgia, protect health care access in rural communities, provide improved transportation across the state, and further address the states educational needs.
The 2018 Legislative Session will be the final session of Governor Nathan Deal. During his final State of the State Address on Thursday, January 11th, the Governor outlined his final priorities to continue leading Georgia into the future. He outlined what he called "Orchards of Opportunity," which reflected on the progress the state has made over the past seven years that will bear fruit for our children and grandchildren.
The Georgia Association of Community Care Providers have prioritized their focus this Legislative Session to include a request for a Provider Rate increase for Alternative Living Services under the CCSP and SOURCE programs for Personal Care Homes. After much work over the summer and fall, we are pleased the Governor’s Office accepted our request and added it to the Governor’s FY 2019 Budget Proposal. We are currently working with the House of Representatives and the Senate to ask them to accept the Governor’s request and keep the ALS Rate Increase in the budget. We will be sending out Advocacy Alerts asking all GACCP members to contact their Legislators to ask for their support. We of course will also be working on and monitoring many pieces of legislation throughout the Legislative Session as well.
The Georgia Association of Community Care Providers looks forward to working with the House of Representatives and Senate to address the many issues facing Home and Community Based Service Providers in Georgia.
