Creating a supplemental budget is the one thing legislators are required to do during this legislative session. With many new legislators, it is important that you educate yours about the needs of people with DD. This is not a time for legislators to create new spending items, it is to fix shortfalls in last year’s biennial budget. Help by using your voice to let policy-makers know how critical services for DD are and encourage them to ensure these services are funded. Learn what services and supports are proposed for cuts or increases and what you can do to help.
