Legislative News By State Representative Julian B. Garrett Elder Abuse Prevention On November 14, in what could be my last official- duty in the Iowa House, I will co-chair a Legislative In- terim Committee meeting on Elder Abuse Prevention. We will be receiving and discussing the report of the Elder Abuse Prevention and Intervention Study Com- mittee. In 2013 the legislature mandated the Department on Aging to continue the work of the 2012 Elder Abuse Task Force, reviewing its report and making any needed additional recommendations. The Task Force was asked to make recommendations for- 1. A comprehensive approach to preventing elder abuse. 2. The definition of elder abuse. 3. Designation of a single point of contac'$ for report- ing elder abuse 4. Recommendations for addressing financial exploi- tation of the elderl including misuse of powers of at- torney and conservatorships. 5. Promoting public awareness of elder abuse and the services available to combat it. 6. Any changes in statutes or rules to help achieve the recommendations of the task force. After receiving the report, our committee will consider what legislation might be needed to address the issues presented As always, feel free to contact me with your ideas or concerns at 515-281-3221 or Julian.Garrett@legis.iowa. gov.
