On Wednesday, June 3, 2020, Assistant Attorney General Jamie Renner, EPI Chair, testified in support of H.635 before the Vermont Senate Health & Welfare Committee. H.635 would strengthen protections for state long-term care residents. For example, under the bill, if a long-term care facility causes its residents “mental harms,” the state may undertake immediate enforcement action against it. VT law currently only permits such action in response to “physical” harms.
