House Passes bill to increase care for autistic children

Legislation originally drafted during last year's session (2009) has already made it one step closer to passage than it did the first time around. On February 18, 2010, the Missouri House passed HBs 1311 & 1341 by an overwhelming vote of 135-18. The bipartisan bills are sponsored by Rep. Dwight Scharnhorst, R-St. Louis and Rep. Jason Grill, D-Kansas City, and would require insurance providers to cover specific treatments that have been identified as the most beneficial to children with autism.
