HB 248 Makes it out of Aging today

In some intriguing moments today in the Aging committee, the Star Rating bill made it through with a serial referral to Appropriations. This bill would create a star rating system for Adult Care Homes and authorize studies for how evaluations would be made for those that succeed as well as those that need technical assistance in order to make it. Eventually the bill would cover other LTC facilities as well.

Congrats to Rep Bordsen D-Alamance for all her efforts. Congrats also to all the members of the committee who took such diligence with this important issue.

Particularly, Rep. Clary R-Cleveland, Gaston who made comments on the importance of this legislation.
