Vickerman Introduces Bill to Repeal Additional Nursing Home Surcharge State Senator Jim Vickerman (DFL-Tracy) has introduced a bill to repeal a surcharge placed last year on nursing home residents to help close the state's budget deficit. "State residents are now paying more than $300 mil: lion a year in increased fees and surcharges so the Republicans can claim that they didn't raise taxes," Sen. Vickerman said. "One of these increases requires pri- vate-pay residents to pay $2,815 a ),ear for a nursing home license surcharge. To add insult to injury, this money does not go back to the nursing home for the residents' care or even into the state's health and human services budget - it goes to the state's General Fund." Sen. Vickerman is author- ing a bill to repeal this increase because he has received more calls, letters. visits, and e-mails on this issue than any other legisla- tive issues this session. "Most of the state's spend- ing on its health and human services budget is for seniors and others who require high-levels of care," Sen. Vickerman said. "Now the state is requiring some nursing home residents to pay even more. Under this plan, their money will run out more quickly and they will have to ask the state for help. This doesn't make sense." Sen. Vickerman said he hopes to receive bipartisan support on his bill. Anyone with comments or questions about Sen. Vickerman's efforts to repeal this surcharge can contact him at 226 State Capitol, 75 Rev.

"LGA is a program that ben- efits cities with high needs and low property tax wealth to help them provide services and keep property taxes down," Sen. Viekerman said. "Communities in rural MN. as well as Minneapolis and St. Paul. were hit hard by the permanent cuts to LGA, while wealthy suburbs had some of its state funding reduced, but only temporari- ly. Last year, there was a lot of talk about everyone shar- ing in the pain of solving the state's $4.5 billion budget deficit, but in the end it seems like rur&l MN and its residents are paying more thar. their share." The fund- ing from the bill will come from three sources: continu- ing the $20 million Market Value Credit (MVC) cut passed in 2003; capturing Digital FINANCIAL AID IS AVAILABLE FOR THOSE WHO QUALIFY ASSISTANT EDITOR: Edit copy, direct page layout w/ StTOng desert Stotts.
