Act Now on Motion Seeking to Remove Changes to Long-Term Care and ADRCs from the State Budget

Assembly Representative Mark Born-R, Beaver Dam, introduced a motion that would take the changes to Family Care, IRIS and Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs) out of the 2015-17 Biennial Budget. 

Representative Born and other legislators have concerns about the lack of details in the current budget proposal. They want more research and input from stakeholders to understand how these major changes to long-term care programs will affect people with disabilities, the elderly, their families and the state.

The motion is under consideration right now, and the Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee needs to hear from the public about this motion.

Take Action Now to Make Your Voice Count

Final decisions about budget provisions are expected in May, so it’s important to speak out now if you want action from your legislators.
Steps You Can Take:
Call or write your legislator and:
  • Share the Born Motion and your position on it.
  • Ask your legislator share your input with the co-chairs of the Joint Finance Committee.
  • Ask your legislator to publicly support the Born Motion. 
Share the Born Motion people in your community. 
Ask people you know to contact their legislators.
