Advocates, please take action today in support of the Records Bill (H.3150)!
Many of you joined The Arc and the coalition of advocates and legislators, including Secretary Sudders, to honor the creation of the Special Commission on State Institutions.
During the very moving ceremony, we heard from David Scott, a sibling of a former resident. He noted that in order for the commission to do its important work, we must pass the Records Bill.
The Records Bill (H.3150 in the House) needs to pass during this informal session, which gives us just a few weeks. The bill will allow records from state institutions to be opened for public inspection, as long as those records are 90 years old.
Please use the letter below or contact your Representative directly, today.
