What if the IGT Expansion
Isnít Successful?
ē The well documented nursing facility funding crisis
needs immediate attention and must be addressed
regardless of whether the federal government
approves the proposed IGT program expansion.
ē If IGT funding increases are not secured, it is
estimated that GPR funding increases of $46 million
in 2000-01 and $63 million in 2002-03 will be
necessary to fund the Governorís nursing facility
budget.
ē WAHSA and its members pledge to continue
working with the Governor and Legislature in
addressing the needs of Wisconsinís nursing facility
residents, staff and communities.
