Senate Panel Passes Reservation Nursing Home Bill

Senate Panel Passes Reservation Nursing Home Bill
PIERRE, SD - A bill that removes a two-year time limit for building American Indian nursing homes receiving Medicaid dollars has passed a Senate committee.
Senate Bill 69 now heads to the full Senate.

In 2010, lawmakers lifted a moratorium on receiving the state's Medicaid dollars to cover care at these nursing facilities, but construction was limited to a two-year period. Senate Bill 69 removes the time limit.

Sen. James Bradford is one of the sponsors of the bill.  He says the state does not cover construction costs, so fundraising for building fees remains a challenge given "hard times" in this recession.
