Update on HB 399.

Yesterday HB 399 was passed on to the Senate with no wording changes made to reflect MoABA's concerns mentioned in prior posts. With it being moved back to the Senate we need to notify our Senators regarding the concerns we have and urge them to make the needed changes rather than opposition of the final bill occurring. Please do your due diligence on getting informed, contacting your Senators and making them aware of how HB 399 and SB 45 impact the 2010 Autism insurance bill and restriction of Applied Behavior Analysis.
