KENNEDY ON SUPREME COURT DECISION ON HOME HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS
Today, Senator Edward M. Kennedy, Chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, released the following statement in response to the decision by the Supreme Court on home health care workers.
"Home care workers perform some of the most difficult, and most important, jobs in our country. They care for our parents and grandparents, and protect the most vulnerable Americans. Today's Supreme Court decision highlights a significant gap in the protections of our laws, and I plan to work with my Senate colleagues on a fair solution that treats these hardworking caregivers with the dignity and respect they deserve."
