The House hearing on the 1115 waiver revealed not much new information on the
Administration’s plans to move forward with the 1115 Waiver. House members had
similar concerns that we did about the lack of details about the waiver. My comments
to you on the 1115 Waiver remain relevant. I do believe that the 1115 Waiver holds
promise to move us from an institutional system to a person-centered community
system but we need to see the details. Here is a link to yesterday’s House hearing:
