Proposed Senate Repeal of Nursing Home Staffing Mandate Has “Significant Chance of Passing”

As of June 11, 2024, both chambers of Congress have introduced resolutions under the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to overturn the proposed federal nursing home staffing mandate. The Hill reported that the Senate resolution “led by Sens. Jon Tester (D-Mont.), James Lankford (R-Okla.) and Joe Manchin (I-W.Va.), has a significant chance of passing the Democratically controlled Senate.” The resolution can pass with only a simple majority of votes and is not subject to the 60-vote filibuster. Aye votes from Senators Tester and Manchin would likely overcome opposition from the Democratic majority, but it is likely that President Biden would veto the resolution.
