Casper Supporters for VA Skilled Nursing Seek New Strategy

Senate lawmakers who support Casper as the best location of the VA skilled nursing facility have a new strategy in successfully amending HB82.

The bill passed on first reading on Monday with Buffalo as the site for the facility.

The 2nd reading was delayed until today as the Casper supporters sought an analysis as to whether the proposed Buffalo location will have enough occupancy to support the payoff of the federal financing within the next 15 years.
