Nursing Home Regulations...
ICA LEGISLATIVE UPDATES 9/24/2021:
Work has slowed on the two major pieces of legislation,
First: a $1 trillion traditional infrastructure bill (The Senate has already passed ) and
Second: a $3.5 trillion “Build Back Better” budget reconciliation bill (containing “human infrastructure” provisions) to be considered in the Senate needing 51 votes.
The House leadership indicates it wants both bills to pass at roughly the same time. There is no hard and fast deadline. However, as time goes on the size of the budget reconciliation bill will likely shrink.
