    Notice of Meeting

    On Thursday, March 3, 2016, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing to review the California Department of Veteran Affairs and its operation of the veterans homes program. The hearing will begin at 9:30 a.m. in Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    At the hearing, the Commission will hear from Dr. Vito Imbasciani, the Secretary of the California Department of Veterans Affairs, who will provide an overview of his vision for the department and the veterans home program. Next, three administrators of California veterans homes will share their experiences overseeing facilities and discuss strategies to engage residents, ensure quality care, reimburse costs and plan for the future. The Commission also will hear from the chair of the California Veterans Board who will discuss the role of the board in relation to the veterans homes and reforms that could be established. Finally, the executive director of the Tennessee State Veterans Home Board will discuss lessons from Tennessee’s experience turning around the veterans homes to become among the best in the nation, at little cost to state taxpayers.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. The Commission also encourages written comments.

    Immediately following the hearing, the Commission will hold a business meeting at 925 L Street, Room 175, in Sacramento.
