The General Assembly is working hard on our behalf to pass a budget as soon as possible. They have some really difficult decisions to make considering the current deficit in our state. I understand that they will have to make cuts somewhere, but early care, education, and intervention are not the place!
Representative Harry Warren will be here in Salisbury on April 29th at 130 W. Innes Street, at 6:30 to discuss what is going on in Raleigh. One of our Autism Support Group families will called him last week with regard to the Autism Medical Reform and Early Education Cuts. He called her back today and they spoke for about 30 minutes.
- Items of importance to the autism and developmental disability community that are under consideration include cuts to special education and other education services, cuts to Medicaid, and cuts to the Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services (MH/DD/SAS).
