We want to take a moment to express our appreciation for all of the Virginia State Legislators for their support of AARP Virginia’s 2017 Legislative Priorities. These priorities include increasing retirement security, strengthening financial exploitation laws, supporting family caregivers, and protecting vulnerable long-term care recipients.
Michigan Capitol summer
In the legislative session beginning Jan. 13, AARP Michigan aims to crack down on financial exploitation, expand long-term care options, improve access to health care, keep utilities affordable and ease the burden on family caregivers. A key to such efforts is the Capitol Corps, a band of volunteers who augment AARP’s presence at the Capitol in Lansing and at home in their legislators’ districts.
