The Promise and Repercussions of the Olmstead Decision The 1999 Supreme Court Olmstead decision required states to configure aid so that people with disabilities could live as close to their own homes and community as possible. Twelve years later, huge numbers of us still remain unwilling inmates of nursing homes. Now, even more of us are likely to lose our independence due to Jan 1 trigger cuts in the California and the Federal budget. Friday, November 18 at 2:30 pm on KPFA, 94.1fm Pushing Limits will discuss the Olmstead decision with Jean Stewart, a member of Communities United in Defense of Olmstead (CUIDO). We’ll also talk about the threat to independent rural hospitals from the same federal trigger cuts with Leslie D. March, CEO of the Lexington (Nebraska) Regional Health Center. Hosted by Eddie Ytuarte and Adrienne Lauby. Podcast & archives of this program: Pushing Limits Radio Live Streaming: Pushing Limits is produced collectively. Contact us.
