Advocacy Activities as of February 27, 2018

The 2018 session has hit the half-way point of its annual 90-day session. Also known as “turn-around,” all bills that do not pass out of their house of origin by this point are considered dead – unless they were introduced or referred at some point to one of the seven committees that are exempt from this deadline: House Appropriation, Senate Ways and Means, both House and Senate Federal and State Affairs Committees, House and Senate Tax Committees and House Calendar and Printing.
Long-term care issues and bills impacting older adults have been at the center of significant policy discussions during the 2018 session. The following link summarizes the issues and the bills that KABC has been involved with during the legislative session.
