Both the House and Senate adopted the conference report, and this should not be an issue at the reconvened session on April 23rd.
We’ve been trying to reach 200% for several years – so, even with the delayed implementation – our goal is now set to become a reality.
Please take a moment to thank your legislators, budget conferees, and Senate HHR members for this important action.
Thank you for all your help during the session.
