Disaster in the details
It has been a while since my last post due to the fact that is has been a while since anything new took place with the autism bills in Jefferson City.... On Wednesday, Julie and I visited the capital and spoke with the Chairman of the Healthcare Policy committee about the bills. Although the HB was not assigned to this committee this year, Rep. Cooper has still been very involved in the efforts. Unfortunately, the detail differences between the house and senate bills have not been worked out and as a result, two good efforts at reform will likely produce no results. With only one week of the legislative session left, last minute efforts are now focused on amendments to add small pieces of the reform bills on to other and hope they will not be the straw on the camel's back that kills the omnibus bill. Keep your fingers crossed!
