Ask Lawmakers To HOLD Autism Cares Act Until Improved!

Safeminds 2014 LogoGreat Job Everyone!  The Autism CARES bill is being held but we need to make sure that the Senate continues to hold the bill.  Please call the following Senators and:

  1. Ask them to ensure that the bill is held until it is fixed or let it sunset so we can start fresh.  

  2. Ask them to please adopt the APRC's proposed changes to make this bill worthy of the unanimous consent of the Senate.  Our kids deserve better than the bill as it is currently written.  We are asking for fiscal accountability, medical best practices and more action to keep kids safe.  

Here are the phone numbers to call:

Senator Harry Reid - 202-224-2158  Senate Majority Leader
Senator Tom Coburn, 202-224-5754
Senator Ted Cruz, 202-224-5922
Senator Rand Paul, 202-224-4343
Senator Mike Lee, 202-224-5444
Senator Jeff Sessions, 202-224-4124
Senator Ron Johnson, 202-224-5323
Senator Jim Risch, 202-224-2752
 
We are hearing rumors that are scaring parents - telling them that if the bill sunsets, all the money will be lost.  This is just wrong.  This bill only "authorizes" money to be spent - it does not "appropriate" a dime.  What we are fixing here is a failed policy that has ignored the needs of our community and not resulted in a single new treatment.  Please make the calls and keep calling.  And don't forget to send this far and wide on social media to get your friends and family to help.

Thanks!
