News Around The World Nursing home fees AUSTIN (AP) — Rates could go up at nursing homes under legislation approved by the Texas Senate to charge nursing homes a “quality assurance fee.” One lawmaker called the fee a granny tax. The bill also would require nursing homes to carry liability insurance. The measure was drafted in response to the state’s growing need to help nursing homes stay afloat. About 40 percent of the state’s nursing homes are in bankruptcy because of low Medicaid reimbursement rates, liability insurance to protect against lawsuits and high vacancy rates. Under the bill, nursing homes would be charged a quality assurance fee of $5.25 a day per occupied nursing home bed. Don’t turn off heat AUSTIN (AP) — Gas com-parties would be prohibited from cutting off the gas on a residential customer during freezing temperatures or on weekends when no personnel is around to accept payment or reconnect service under a bill given preliminary approval by the Texas House. The bill by Rep. Tbm Hodge, D-Dallas, was approved 132-8, with several Republicans changing their vote at the last minute after being outnumbered. Noise bill moves on AUSTIN (AP) — When the speaker of the House bangs his gavel, it’s about 85 decibels of noise, says Rep. George “Buddy” West. That would be considered “unreasonable” noise under a bill approved by the House that lowers the accepted level of noise from 85 to 55 decibels. West’s bill also increases penalties for a person who makes unreasonable noise in a public place or private residence that the person has no right to occupy and the person has previously been convicted of the offense. The bill affects Texans who aren’t protected by municipal ordinances that restrict noise levels. Airports and agricultural operations are exempt. Reckless Kelly plays Gruene Hall at 8 p.m. today.
