On Wednesday, the House Committee on Ways and Means released its own recommendations for the FY23 budget. The Arc greatly appreciates the commitment to disability services demonstrated by Chair Michlewitz and the House Committee on Ways and Means.
Nearly our entire budget request for the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) line items were granted! We also appreciate the outstanding advocacy by members of the House and our constituents. We plan to reboot our efforts on Chapter 257, and will work with the trade associations on that major request. See more on the budget here.
And before I close: many thanks to those of you who supported us at last week’s Building Brighter Futures Gala and continue to send donations in.
For those of you who missed it, please enjoy the virtual program below.
