Some legislators in Alabama warn that nursing home rates could rise from some if Alabama doubles the nursing home bed tax in an attempt to trigger federal fund for
Medicaid.

Gov. Riley's administrations wants to boost the tax on each of Alabama's more than 25,000 nursing home beds from $1,200 to $2,600 a year to make up for the budget shortfall.
