Voters Press for Autism Insurance Reform
Autism insurance reform can be approved in California this year, if voters demand it, according to Autism Speaks, an advocacy group.
AB 171, the reform measure is currently on the suspend calendar, where it can languish indefinitely. Autism Speaks is asking voters to call, email, write, tweet and text Assembly Speaker Perez and Assembly member Fuentes asking them to pull AB 171 off the suspend calendar and pass it favorably out of committee.
In addition, it is asking people to join Autism Votes Mobile by texting “AVotes” to 30644! Autism Votes is an initiative of Autism Speaks.
Speaker Perez’s phone number is 916.319.2046. Assembly member Fuentes can be reached at 916.319.2039. Tell them it’s time to move AB 171 off the suspend calendar for a committee vote. Then, Autism Vote says, “Lather, rinse, repeat and do it again. Light those phones up now!”
It also suggests that everyone ask their friends to post the message On FACEBOOK.
