California”s Little Hoover Commission Testimony

On May 27, 2010, NSCLC attorney Eric Carlson testified at California’s Little Hoover Commission, an independent state oversight committee that is reviewing the state’s system of care for seniors and individuals with disabilities. Eric outlined the legal landscape post-Olmstead, including recent cases in which courts have halted state attempts to cut home and community based services. He also pointed to “win-win” opportunities for the state to increase the number of people able to avoid expensive institutionalization.
