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.

In a state whose legislative session is only 45 days, AARP stands ready to score some wins for state residents 50-plus when lawmakers meet beginning Jan. 23. AARP Utah’s legislative priorities for 2017 include retirement security, support for family caregivers and access to affordable health care.
Legislation
When lawmakers arrived at the Virginia General Assembly on Opening Day, our team of volunteer advocates were right there sharing our legislative priorities with them. We are requesting passage of legislation that will permit advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) to have full practice authority. AARP Virginia is also advocating for more than $2 million to fund the state Long-Term Care Ombudsman program, more funding for a state respite care program that assists family caregivers, and for legislation to protect older Virginians from financial exploitation.

We like to refer to the nearly 600,000 family caregivers across Wisconsin as the “silent army of unsung heroes.”
