On Wednesday, June 5, the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee released a bipartisan discussion draft of legislation to reauthorize the Older Americans Act. The most recent OAA reauthorization was enacted in 2016 for a three year period that expires on September 30, 2019. Over the past several months, a bipartisan group of staffers on the Committee have worked to develop policies and legislative text for the next reauthorization. On Wednesday afternoon they publicly released their draft bill text for review and comment.
The Committee is requesting that feedback be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, June 14.
