Autism Speaks and CA Mandate

A California action alert from Autism Votes, an initiative of Autism Speaks.

There are two hearings on autism insurance reform legislation next week. Tuesday's hearing will take place before the Assembly Health Committee at 1:30pm for AB 171 and Wednesday's hearing will take place before the Senate Committee on SB 166. You can read Autism Speaks letter of support for both bills here.

Today we are asking you to give your advocate support for AB 171. Even if you have already done this action item we need you to do this again to keep the issue fresh in their minds!

Ask your Assemblymember to speak with their colleagues on the Assembly Health Committee to vote YES on AB 171 when it is called for a vote in committee.
