|Subject:||Increase in Reimbursement Rate for Guardians|
|In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation that amends the Human Services Code to increase the reimbursement rate for guardians of older adults from $100 to $300. This increase would still require federal approval under the state plan. The $100 rate was established in 1988 and has not received a substantial increase since. This legislation will provide crucial funds to the guardians who are court-appointed to make life altering decisions on behalf of some of our most vulnerable citizens.
I welcome you in joining as a cosponsor of this important legislation.
Introduced as HB1356
