red ball Governor's Review Memo 5/27/2015   

Withdrawn 7/24/15
Reason: HB2130/SB974 of 2013 mandated that the department amend the regulations in order to codify a 2007 guideline the department developed to assist nursing facilities with the privacy intricacies related to installing electronic monitoring equipment. Subsequent to the fast track action being published in the Virginia Register, several stakeholder organizations stated to the department that certain provisions in the regulatory text go beyond the provisions of the 2007 guideline. The department agrees and plans to initiate a new fast track action that is more consistent with the provisions of the 2007 guideline.
