The California mandate is still on the governor's desk. Autism Speaks has sent out this alert:
October 3, 2011 URGENT ACTION ALERT!
SB 946 IN DANGER OF VETO BY GOV. BROWN. TELL HIM CHILDREN WITH AUTISM DESERVE INSURANCE REFORM!
We are hearing that the insurance industry is pressuring Governor Brown to effectively veto SB 946. A veto would allow insurance discrimination to continue against children with autism in California.
If you want this California, you must turn up the heat on Governor Brown - today! You need to send an email to let him know you want him to sign autism insurance reform now. Get everyone you know in California to help magnify your voice.
Here is How YOU Can Help:
2.) SHARE THE NEWS. Anyone you know who lives in California can help - they do not have to have a child with autism so post this to your Facebook:
"URGENT ATTN CALIFORNIA FRIENDS! I need your help to ensure that Gov. Brown DOES NOT veto the autism insurance reform bill, SB 946, by sending him an email now. He cannot allow insurance discrimination to continue against children with autism. Please go to the link below & take action. Share on your page & write DONE so I can thank you!
