WE NEED YOUR HELP AND WE BELIEVE IN KEEPING SENIORS AT HOME!

The coalition’s press conference was well attended. We ask Governor Lamont to fix Section 305.

Section 305 of House Bill 7424, entitled “AN ACT CONCERNING THE STATE BUDGET FOR THE BIENNIUM ENDING JUNE THIRTIETH, 2021, AND MAKING APPROPRIATIONS THEREFOR, AND IMPLEMENTING PROVISIONS OF THE BUDGET,” unfairly targets homecare and makes bad public policy. Governor Lamont should strike out section 305 before signing the budget into law.

Section 305 of HB 7424:

  1. Was improperly inserted into the budget.
  2. It is ANTI-BUSINESS and will destabilize the industry.
  3. ASK GOVERNOR LAMONT TO CALL A SPECIAL SESSION!

Ask Governor Lamont to CALL A SPECIAL SESSION.

This will destabilize the homecare industry as a whole.

We need everyone who cares about caregivers, seniors and homecare agencies to help.

It can be anyone, your friend, sibling, anyone who wants their voice heard. They will only ask your first name and town.

Contact Governor Lamont’s office now!

Section 305 of HB 7424: Banning Non-Solicitation Agreements

Section 305 of HB 7424 would prohibit non-solicitation clauses in caregiver contracts.

This would undermine the agency model. The agency model is the majority choice of clients and their families, because they realize the oversight it provides is critical to quality homecare.

The agency model adds tangible value:

  • Matches the right caregiver with the right client.
  • Provides training, reliability, and accountability.
  • Helps keep seniors in their homes and out of institutions.
  • Is safest and most stable for all parties involved.

These anti-business proposals seriously threaten a vital and growing Connecticut industry.
