Holden Bill Would Allow Some Disabilities Service Providers to Charge More

Assembly Bill 279, by Assembly member Chris Holden, who represents Monrovia, would allow developmental disabilities service providers to charge more in order to pay their workers whatever minimum wage requirements they face. "Without an increase to reimbursement rates to meet local mandates, many developmental disability service providers may have to shut their doors," said Holden. The bill has passed the Assembly Committee for Human Services on a 6-0 vote.
