(Lansing-AP) -- State House Republicans said today they're working on legislation that will mean more informed choices for seniors selecting long-term care providers.

Members of the House Senior Health, Security and Retirement Committee say they want to make sure seniors know exactly what kind of long-term care they're getting from a provider when they sign a contract.

They also want to make sure seniors don't get tossed out of a nursing home or an assisted living facility because a facility stops accepting Medicaid.

Lawmakers presented their recommendations at a Lansing news conference. Their work is a result of talking to seniors at public hearings across Michigan over 18 months.

A short time after the news conference, the committee unanimously approved a bill that would require providers to present contract information in plain English.
