AB 979 modernizes existing family council laws, so that members can meet and communicate
electronically and continue to operate during a public health emergency. The bill also ensures that
facilities will be more responsive to concerns raised by family councils, discourages operators
from undermining family council activities, and clarifies that control of the family council
membership and participation in meetings lies with the family council itself. AB 979 also
harmonizes the federal and state rules for nursing home family councils and aligns the rules for
nursing homes and RCFEs.
