No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
Under current law, convalescent or nursing facilities, as well as assisted living facilities, are required to disclose whether they are licensed to provide care to patients with Alzheimer's and similar diseases. This legislation makes changes to the existing disclosure requirements to make them more clear and to specify that such notices must be given to each resident of the facility and their next of kin or guardian.
This legislation makes changes to existing regulations rather than creating entirely new regulations. For this reason we do not see a connection between this bill and our liberty principles and remain neutral.
