The 2023-24 Legislative Session has officially begun! There are dozens of new lawmakers in the State Capitol who need to be educated on personal care. Learn how to help advocate for the personal care industry!

The Joint Finance Committee has officially announced their public hearing schedule on the state budget. This is the public's only chance to weigh in on the budget bill, and it is critical that WPSA have a strong turnout in support of our ask to increase the MAPC rate by 39%. 

As we discussed at the conference, we would like WPSA members to volunteer to organize other personal care agencies to attend in their respective regions. If you are interested in being a regional lead, please let us know! WPSA will coach you on how to testify!
