JOIN US: Learn How You Can Impact the Assisted Living Licensure Rulemaking Process

Last week, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) published Proposed Rules and Notice of Hearing in the State Register. This effectively begins the formal public comment period on the proposed rules that will govern licensed assisted living settings after Aug. 1, 2021. This is a significant advocacy opportunity for LeadingAge Minnesota members, as the process invites the public to weigh in on the rules and express support or concerns.

Join us for a free webinar on Tuesday, Dec. 29, 2020 at 12:30 PM to learn how you can participate in the Assisted Living Licensure rulemaking process. The LeadingAge Minnesota team lead you in a virtual how-to learning experience that will help you prepare and submit your own comments to the rule.

We have been heavily engaged in the rulemaking process. As members of the MDH Assisted Living Licensure Rulemaking Advisory Committee, we have provided extensive comments to help shape the proposed rule. While the proposed rule reflects many of our comments, there are still several significant concerns with the rule that we hope can be addressed in the comment period.

Register for Shaping Minnesota’s Assisted Living Licensure Rulemaking: A Virtual How-to Program to learn more about the rulemaking process and how you can have an impact in the final Assisted Living Licensure laws.

About the Rulemaking Process

The Initial Comment Period is now open and closes on Feb. 9, 2021, at 4:30 p.m. If you wish to make comments to the proposed rules, please review the instructions provided by the Office of Administrative Hearings. Please note that all comments are public. If you’d like to learn more about the rulemaking process, read more in last week’s Advantage.
