Friday Rally for CA Mandate

There was a rally for the CA mandate on Monday. Another takes place tomorrow. Rachel Trachten writes in The Examiner:

State Senator Darrell Steinberg will host a rally in Berkeley this Friday, September 30, in support of his bill requiring insurance companies to cover behavioral health treatment for children and adults with autism.

The bill, SB 946, has passed both the California Assembly and Senate and is awaiting Governor Brown's signature. Similar legislation has already been enacted by 27 other states. For more info on autism treatment options, click here.
