05/06/09 Autism Votes... It's time for lawmakers to listen.
Dear Oregon Autism Advocate,
States all around us are passing autism insurance reform. As you know Oregon HB 3000 has been introduced in the Oregon legislature and if passed will provide Oregon's children with autism insurance coverage for treatments and therapies they need and deserve, including ABA therapy.
Our next hurdle is the House Rules Committee and then HB 3000 is on it's way to the floor of the House for a vote and one step closer to becoming a law!
If the bill does not get out of the Rules Committee, we will not be able to get appropriate coverage for Oregon's children until the next session in 2011.
We need your help to make some noise and let the committee know how very much you want this bill to pass on through the legislative process! They are hearing from the insurance companies...they need to hear from you!
Here is How You Can Help:
