Governor Strickland Opens PASSPORT Doors
Great news today, Governor Ted Strickland issued an executive order asking the Ohio Department of Aging to reopen the PASSPORT doors to over 1,000 older adults who are on the PASSPORT waiting list. This issue has been a priority issue for The Center for Community Solutions, the Council on Older Persons (COOP), and the Campaign to Protect Ohio's Future. It represents good policy from both a human standpoint (most people would prefer to stay in their own home) and a fiscal standpoint (PASSPORT costs a fraction of what it costs to keep someone in a nursing home). Please take a moment to either call Governor Strickland (614-466-3555 ) or contact him online and thank him for this bold step!
