4/25/17 – The MLO Minute: Elder Abuse Act Has Good Chance of Becoming Law This Year
The Elder Abuse and Prevention Act has a good chance of becoming law this year, its key sponsor, Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley (R-IA) predicted Thursday. “It would make society a safer place for seniors,” Grassley said at a Judiciary session where the bill passed unanimously on a voice vote. The legislation has received wide support among elderly advocacy groups. The Senator said the bill has a better chance of being enacted than an almost identical measure did last year because it ran out of time.
