We also weighed in with the Government Accountability Office (GAO) on its study comparing Medicaid spending and oversight in assisted living and skilled nursing facilities. This study, requested by the Senate Aging Committee lead- ership, is expected to be complete in early 2017. The business of seniors housing is impacted by policy decisions that go well beyond housing. This is espe- cially true given the growth projec- tions for this industry. It is important to weigh in on issues that directly or indirectly improve or may be harm- ful to our industry. In addition to ASHA's ongoing priority issues such as tax reform, housing finance reform, workplace regulations, Alzheimer's research funding, and averting any attempts to federally regulate the industry, it is vitally important that we be more than just a casual observer on other key policy debates in the next Con- gress such as immigration reform, affordable housing, long-term care financing, caregiver shortages, and many others. Casting a broad net is valuable because it increases our visibility on Capitol Hill, helps to build relation- ships with members of Congress and staff, and gives us an opportu- nity to lend an important voice to policy discussions that otherwise might not be heard. ASHA is well-positioned to engage and secure favorable results on many of these issues. We are a highly respected organization with a strong track record of success. We are armed with solid indus- try research and have good rela- tionships in Congress and in the agencies. Most importantly, due to the generosity of our members, ASHA has a healthy Political Action Com- mittee (PAC). The Seniors Housing PAC complements our efforts to build and maintain relationships with policymakers who understand and appreciate the issues facing our industry and the important role of seniors housing to the economy overall, and in particular to families and caregivers. Come November, our country will have a new president and a new Congress. Experts predict a potential shift in the Senate from Republican to Democratic control as well as a narrower Republican majority in the House. Regardless of the composition, ASHA will be ready to take up the causes of the industry and advance our issue agenda thoughtfully and successfully in the 115th Congress. n
