CRC Temporarily Postpones Proposal 88

Statement from Emmett Reed, FHCA Executive Director, on Proposal 88 Being Temporarily Postponed

“Florida Health Care Association wants to thank Commissioner Brecht Heuchan and the entire Constitution Revision Commission for withdrawing Proposal 88. We appreciate the CRC for affording our members numerous opportunities - through committee meetings and public hearings - to share concerns about the proposal, as well as stories of how these caregivers go above and beyond to provide high-quality care and comfort for each of their residents. We believe the Legislature is the proper place for these types of discussions and look forward to working together with Florida lawmakers, regulators and other stakeholders on policies that prioritize resident care.”
