Dear AARP Wyoming Memebrs,
Harshman
What a week - Week Four of the Legislative session brought clarity (and heartburn) to our 2020 Budget Session. Bills crossed from one chamber to the other and are either passed or removed from consideration, allowing AARP Wyoming to concentrate on specific bills. That was certainly the case for us this week and it paid off.

It was a tense week in both the House and Senate during week three of the 2020 Legislative Session. Contentious subjects such as gun and abortion bills were discussed. AARP was able to avoid those issues, but had a big week in its own right.

In Wyoming approximately 74,000 family caregivers provided an estimated 62 million hours of care — worth a staggering $980 million — to their parents, spouses, partners, and friends in 2017, according to state data available in the latest report of AARP’s Valuing the Invaluable series. The complexity of family caregiving increases as medical and nursing tasks continue to enter the home, and family demographics change amidst an aging population.
