Action Alert: Efforts Shift Focus to Senate Commerce and Labor Committee

House Bill defeated in committee, Senate Bill up for debate

Our effort now must quickly shift focus to the Senate Commerce and Labor Committee, which will hear SB 464, sponsored by Senator Janet Howell, next Monday, February 8 at around 1:30 p.m.

If successful in our Senate efforts, we will get a second chance on the House side. Please stay positive and continue to advocate for autism insurance reform in Virginia.
