Assisted living rulemaking rules report deadline extended

The Department of Health’s (MDH’s) proposed rules governing licensed assisted living facilities are pending before Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) Ann O’Reilly. We anticipated that ALJ O’Reilly would issue her rule report last week. Instead, Chief Administrative Law Judge Jenny Starr issued an order extending the deadline allowing ALJ O’Reilly until Monday, March 29, 2021, to complete her Rule Report. Find the extension order online here

According to Chief Judge Starr’s Order, she granted ALJ O’Reilly an extension due to the extensive public comment and filings.

If you are interested in reviewing more information, visit the “Assisted Living Licensure” page on the MDH website.
