The Senate Budget subcommittee responsible for the money our system gets had its last hearing on our issues. In a surprise turn of events, they not only approved Governor Newsom’s short-term limited funding increase, they…
Voted YES on a (minimum) eight percent increase for all providers.
Voted YES on making the increase permanent.
Voted YES on ending the Uniform Furlough Schedule.
Voted YES on restore social recreation and camp services.
Voted YES on a developing and implementing a rate reform plan.
But now, we need to ask the Assembly, and the rest of the Senate, to support these bold proposals. If you want these changes to happen, you need to call your legislators today and say “support the Senate proposal for developmental disabilities funding!”
These calls will only take you a few minutes to make, but they will help solve a problem that’s years old. This success happened because advocates like you have been pushing legislators to support our system.
