Argentum is pleased that the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending package includes several provisions that we have advocated for in recent months, including language to support the senior care workforce and other job training programs, disaster relief funding to help operators recover from Hurricane Ian, increases in Alzheimer’s research funding, among other provisions.
We are still in the process of reviewing the full legislative text, which was released early this morning. A full summary of the legislation is available here and a summary of the appropriations provisions is available here. A summary of the disaster supplemental is available here and a one-page fact sheet is available here.
Congress will have a limited window to consider the package, which must be passed and signed into law by President Biden by midnight Friday to avert a government shutdown.
