Ericka Jones, Jonathan Dollhopf Jennifer Disch and Gregg Beratan met with Elizabeth Brown From Rep. Caster's office. We went through what the bill did an why it was so important. She asked about the nature of LTSS and seemed pleased to hear that this wasn't about introducing new services but rather ensuring that existing services are offered in the community.
