OPRA Submits Feedback on the Draft HCBS Access Act Bill
OPRA submitted formal feedback on the draft HCBS Access Act bill this week. Given the conversation around the bill within the Membership and the stated need for ideas around the workforce on our Town Hall Tuesday, we centered our comments on strategies for bolster our workforce. We used many of the strategies and feedback from our committees and workforce small groups to develop the response. In our submission email, we stressed the need to continue having conversations on this topic. We need to support the whole spectrum of services and we need to have more time to understand how this bill could impact the dynamics of our system. Especially given the unique role county boards have in our services.
