    Autism Votes - May 24 at 5:31pm
    Last week, the House passed a defense bill that would end the discrimination experienced by military families in getting the health care needed by their children on the autism spectrum.

    Today, the Senate Armed Services Committee did not include an amendment to provide for comprehensive autism care in the Senate version of the defense bill. The full Senate will likely consider the bill in the c...oming weeks, and further changes to the bill are possible.

    We will provide further details of the Senate action as they become known so, please stay tuned in case we need you to make calls and send emails.
