Advocacy Corner – May 2022

Sharing is caring

This month, likely mid-month, we expect the final revision to the Governor’s budget. Our best guess is that most of the revision will be to the projected state surplus, that any new spending will be in one-time or pilot programs and that nothing we expect to happen will be removed from the final budget. We expect the legislative hearings to begin in late May and ain’t a-gonna guess when they’ll end. It’s not a bad idea to monitor with us and advocate for your own views.

There is a survey being conducted by the state of service provider agencies meant to track direct care longevity and skills. The hope is that this data and similar future surveys will help encourage the state to invest in our very worthy direct care staff for future policy choices.

As always, thanks to Marty Omoto of CDCAN for amplifying the transparency and circularity of information between the community and policy-makers. If you would like to receive CDCAN’s extensive reporting, write to Marty. If you’re exhausted from sending all that money to Imagine but still have money sitting around accusing you, supporting CDCAN supports our community.
