In the coming weeks, the Pennsylvania Senate will begin discussing the proposed budget bill passed by the PA House of Representatives. It’s time to start engaging with your PA Senator to encourage them to support a budget that includes increased funding for intellectual disability and autism services.
The House budget bill includes the first across the board rate increases that we have seen in a decade. It also calls for increased community-based services and waiting list initiatives.
