Oppose an Increase in Penalties for ACFs

Oppose A.5485 (Paulin)/S.5472 (Rivera) 

LeadingAge New York opposes A.5485 (Paulin)/S.5472 (Rivera), a comprehensive bill that would impose new burdensome and costly requirements on adult care facilities (ACFs). The impact would be significant, as the legislation proposes to:

  • Increase the potential penalties for ACF violations from $1,000 to $2,000 per violation per day - or $3,000 for a repeat violation.
  • Require ACFs to publicly post complaint-driven inspection reports and make them available to prospective residents.
