The American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living, Washington, praised Rep. Tom Latham (R-Iowa) for submitting a report that aims to limit duplicative oversight of nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

In his role as chairman of the House Appropriations subcommittee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies, Latham submitted a report as part of the appropriations process that recommends to the Housing and Urban Development Department that it rely on state and local regulatory inspections regarding HUD loans to nursing homes and assisted living facilities made under Section 232 of the National Housing Act.
