  • June 26th letter led by U.S. Representatives Shelley Berkley (D-NV), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) and Earl Pomeroy (D-ND), signed by 122 members of Congress
  • "We are grateful for this bipartisan outpouring of support from lawmakers who agree this regulation presents a danger to seniors' nursing home care and to front-line caregivers' jobs," said Lisa Cantrell, a co-founder of the National Association of Health Care Assistants (NAHCA), and a national spokesperson for the CPSC. "The CPSC national membership strongly supports fair, meaningful reform -- and we will enthusiastically embrace a reform bill that protects seniors' care and promotes a strong direct care workforce. Unfortunately, the bill we now see in the U.S. House of Representatives does not meet these criteria. We will ask lawmakers during the August recess to help fix the bill in a manner that is fair, protects seniors and preserves jobs."

    The Coalition to Protect Senior Care consists of the American Association for Long Term Care Nursing (AALTCN); the American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA); the American Association of Nurse Assessment Coordinators (AANAC); the National Rural Health Association (NRHA); the American Association of Nurse Executives (AANEX); the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA); the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA); the American Society of Health Care Administration Executives (ASHCAE); the American Health Care Association (AHCA); the American Health Quality Association (AHQA); the National Association for the Support of Long Term Care (NASL); the National Association of Health Care Assistants (NAHCA); the Alliance for Quality Nursing Home Care;
