On January 15, the House of Representatives unanimously passed Nicky’s Law. More than 50 families gathered in the House Gallery to watch the vote and thank their Representatives and House leaders. The bill authorizes a registry to hold the names of employees who have committed acts of substantiated abuse which have resulted in serious physical injury or serious emotional injury for adults served by the Department of Developmental Services. The registry will be housed at the Disabled Persons Protection Commission (DPPC).
This holiday season, use the form letter below to contact your State Representative to ask them to prioritize the Abuse Registry Bill also known as Nicky’s Law (H 4074) in the New Year.
