Opposition to Fast Track

I do not support the fast track of this proposed regulation.  The impact to the communities by allowing residents to stay within a community greatly deminishes the ability of the care givers and the community to provide proper care.  This detracts from companies being able to afford to have care givers due to the reduction in resources.  Executive Directors down to front line staff perform their jobs because they have servant hearts, but the reality is that companies have to be able to pay their employees.  This process needs to go through the standard regulatory process and create real positive change to an already taxed industry.
