The Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security needs to hear from you this week regarding the passage of Autism Police Training, or officially, “An act relative to criminal justice training regarding autistic persons” (H 2139/S 1443).
As you know, The Arc took part in a very powerful hearing on July 11 and the committee is now deliberating on this bill. We are hopeful that the bill will move out of committee in August. We will need further advocacy to ensure the bill moves out of Ways and Means and to the Governor.
Please take a minute to call:
- (617) 722-2230 (House)
- (617) 722-1485 (Senate)
A committee analyst or reviewer will answer, or you may get a voice mail. Let them know you support this bill (H 2139/S 1443) and would like to see it pass as soon as possible.
