Description

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a federal agency, has issued a requirement for health care workers to be fully vaccinated by January 4th of next year.  That requirement has sounded the alarm for nursing home administrators and staff, who are warning policymakers of a potential nursing home workforce crisis.  Senate Human Services Reform Committee Chair Jim Abeler, R-Anoka, and Senator John Hoffman, DFL-Champlin, join moderator Shannon Loehrke to offer their perspectives on the challenges facing Minnesota’s nursing homes.

Thirty-two states across the country, including all of Minnesota’s neighbors, have legalized sports betting, according to Representative Zack Stephenson, chair of the House Commerce Committee.  He recently held a news conference to announce his intention to pass a law that would give Minnesotans that same opportunity.  Also in the program, photographs of the Minnesota State Capitol through the seasons.
