2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill imposes a moratorium on the transition of a resident of a State developmental center to a new location at the developmental center, or the transfer of the resident to a new residential placement, because of an impending closure of the developmental center, until the Department of Human Services prepares and posts on its website a comprehensive written closure plan. The plan is to include, but not be limited to, a requirement to maintain sufficient staffing resources and staffing ratios to ensure that the individuals with developmental disabilities remaining at the developmental center during implementation of a closure plan are provided with safe and appropriate care and medically and behaviorally appropriate living conditions.
