Ind. Gov't. - "Indiana nursing home developer seeks to skirt Wisconsin's nursing home limits"

A lengthy, interesting story this morning in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reported by Kathleen Gallagher, begins:

An Indiana nursing home company that was tied to a legislative ethics scandal in that state last year says it wants to build more than two dozen facilities in Wisconsin, a proposal that would require it to bypass a decades-old cap on nursing home beds here.

Critics worry that an amendment accommodating the proposal could be slipped into Wisconsin's budget bill on Thursday, which would allow it to avoid the public scrutiny given to ordinary legislation.
