On Jan. 30 the Colorado Senate unanimously passed SB18-054 by Sen. Larry Crowder that caps assisted living residence (ALR) licensure fee increases at the consumer price index (CPI) beginning in 2019. This bill supported by LeadingAge Colorado, allows the board to increase the fees over two years (2018 and 2019) to fund enough CDPHE surveyor positions to inspect every ALR every three years and investigate every complaint.
