Please visit our Legislative Action Center where the Alliance has posted a new message to Governor Deval Patrick and his administration.
The message, titled “Governor: Please Keep Care in the Community” points out the fact that home health agencies and VNA’s are still dealing with the cuts from last year and could not survive any further reductions.
The Alliance has already sent a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary JudyAnn Bigby, Assistant Secretary Jean McGuire and their staff regarding Governor Deval Patrick’s announcement that Massachusetts is facing a $600 million shortfall. Among the Governor’s “five-point” plan for addressing the gap involves laying off 2,000 state employees and management furloughs, consolidating state agencies wherever possible, calling unions to the table, and calling for legislative action on the Governor’s municipal relief package to mitigate cuts to local aid.
Please help us advocate by sending your own message to the Governor.
