It’s unbelievable to me that groups are asking the Legislature to suspend funding for Initiative 1163.
Have they forgotten that this is the second time in three years that voters have made home-care safety and training a priority in this state? Or are they simply ignoring the will of voters?
I-1163 passed last month with 65 percent approval; in 2008 it passed with 73 percent approval. It’s time we fund this common-sense initiative.
I have a mother that I provide care for. If something happened to me, I want to feel confident the person coming in to care for her is safe and well-trained.
The Legislature needs to get its act together and create a balanced budget and increase revenue. We have experienced three years of cuts to vital services and can’t afford anymore. Lawmakers must fund I-1163 and ensure our elderly and disabled citizens receive the safe, quality care they need and deserve.
The people have spoken, and now the Legislature must act.
