The seven members said next to nothing about the governorís veto of Senate Bill 1282, which would have reauthorized the board until 2029. They just carried on with business as usual for nearly four hours Monday, proceeding to launch 10 new investigations relating to assisted living facilities and making plans with one manager for a year in the future.

The bill was listed on the meeting agenda, so members could have discussed it. But the only reference was a statement by the boardís executive director, Sabrina Khan, who simply stated that the bill was vetoed.
