Chapter 257 Report

SECTION 180.   The executive office of health and human services shall file a report with the executive office for administration and finance and the house and senate committees on ways and means not later than March 1, 2016 on the implementation of chapter 257 of the acts of 2008. The report shall include: (i) spending and revenue for rates not yet promulgated as of July 1, 2015, by item, revenue source, service class and start date of implementation; (ii) spending and revenue for rates promulgated not later than June 30, 2013 that have not received a biennial rate review by item, revenue source, service class and start date of implementation; (iii) spending and revenue for rates due to be reviewed on July 1, 2015 by item, revenue source, service class and start date of implementation; (iv) estimated spending and revenue for rates to be reviewed between July 2, 2015 and June 30, 2016, inclusive, by item, revenue source, service class and projected start date of implementation; and (v) the extent to which each human service provider organization benefitting from rate increases under said chapter 257 has increased wages and benefits for its front-line human service employees.
 

Veto Explanation:
I am vetoing this section because the budget appropriates $30 million to resolve certain litigation and to adjust rates for human service providers governed by Chapter 257. That litigation has been resolved, and human service provider rates will be adjusted accordingly. Therefore, the reporting requirements under this section are unnecessary and burdensome.
