Amendment Number: 
1272H02.01H (Amendment HA1 to HCS HB 466)
Amendment Purpose: 
Provides subsides for personal care services
Date of Vote: 
03/12/19
My Vote: 
No
Explanation: 

Representative Deb Lavender (Democrat - District 90) introduced this amendment which would provide subsidies for those with low incomes that would be used to provide personal care services.  The amendment was not debated at length, so I wasn't able to form a complete opinion on its contents.  My inclination upon first review is that this is not a good idea.  Nonetheless this was far too complicated of an issue to add as an amendment, and should be more properly be debated on its own as a standalone bill.  On that basis I voted "no".
