“House Bill 2764 addresses systemic issues in Arizona’s long-term care system by critically improving standards of care and enhancing regulatory oversight,” said Dana Marie Kennedy, AARP Arizona State Director.

AARP Arizona commends Representative Dunn for sponsoring this vital legislation and for his commitment to the health and safety of older Arizonans.

On April 8, 2024, Governor Hobbs signed H.B. 2764 into law, as a demonstration of our state’s dedication to improving long-term care facilities and ensuring transparency, safety, and quality care for all residents.
