Nursing Shortage State Response Act of 2001 - States that nothing in the Social Security Act shall prevent a State from creating new positions and categories of nursing assistants and from permitting Medicare and Medicaid payment for them if the assistants hired are doing tasks that would be Medicare/Medicaid funded if performed by a nurse.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
