WE NEED YOUR HELP AND WE BELIEVE IN KEEPING SENIORS AT HOME!
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:
- Was improperly inserted into the budget.
- It is ANTI-BUSINESS and will destabilize the industry.
- ASK GOVERNOR LAMONT TO CALL A SPECIAL SESSION!

“Don’t destabilize homecare!”
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.
