Overtime for Consumer Directed Personal Care Attendants
As many of you know, the Governor had put forth a proposal to allow consumer directed attendants to get up to 16 hours of paid overtime for the hours they worked with people with Waivers. The General Assembly removed that funding. There is now a proposal by the Governor to bring it back!
This is huge and very exciting. PLEASE contact your legislator today!
You can use Who’s My Legislator to find them and send this simple message–
“I’m asking you to support Governor’s McAufliffe’s proposal to fund overtime for Waiver care attendants. Tell them how hard it is to get good staff now and the value of retaining them.”
Ask them to support this proposal when they see it during their Veto Session on April 20th!
