One story about the overtime cap:
An elderly veteran, with a range of disabilities, including cancer, gets over 60 total PCA hours per week. In response to the mailing he received from the state, telling him he can’t have his one PCA work more than 40 hours/week, he said, “I might as well pack up my house and move into a nursing home.”
