Special Session Bills Impact People with Disabilities
Legislative leaders are trying to fast-track a package of bills released late Friday. These bills would significantly limit the role of the new Governor and would have unintended consequences for people with disabilities.
Today, the Joint Finance Committee is holding a public hearing (12:30 PM in room 412 East in the State Capitol) on these proposals and is planning to vote them out of committee. The full Senate and Assembly could be voting to pass these bills as early as Tuesday.
You can read summaries of the bills here.
