2009 Ron Paul Chapter 31

INTRODUCING THE NURSING HOME EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE ACT

Not linked on Ron Paul’s Congressional Website.

Congressional Record [.PDF]

HON. RON PAUL OF TEXAS IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Thursday, March 12, 2009

2009 Ron Paul 31:1
Mr. PAUL. Madam Speaker, I rise to introduce the Nursing Home Emergency Assistance Act. This act makes private, for-profit nursing homes eligible for the same federal aid as is currently available to public nursing homes. Under current federal law, only public nursing homes may receive federal disaster assistance. However, hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes do not distinguish between private and public, or for-profit and not-for- profit, nursing homes.


2009 Ron Paul 31:2

As I have recently seen in my district, all nursing homes face unique challenges coping with natural disasters and their aftermaths. It is not fair to the taxpayers who work in, reside in, or have entrusted the care of their loved ones to, a private nursing home that private nursing homes are denied the same federal aid available to their public counterparts. Mr. Speaker, the Nursing Home Emergency Assistance Act ensures all residents of nursing homes can benefit from federal disaster aid. I encourage my colleagues to support this legislation.
