TAKE ACTION TODAY!
Let Legislative Leaders know that an annual COLA for IDD services is what people deserve!
NJACP, as part of the HUSEC coalition, led by NJACP member Easter Seals, to pass A-508/S-2668, that establishes an annual COLA for IDD, mental health, and substance abuse services, encourages anyone interested in sustainable services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) to please act today. The bill is in danger of not moving during the lame duck session, the period between the election and the new legislative session in January.
Prime sponsor Assembly Dan Benson is working with the Speakers office to move the bill during lame duck; however, time is running out and leaders need to hear from constituents who are about sustainable funding for people with IDD. Assemblyman Benson is retiring and will not be here next session, now is the time to act!
Speaker Coughlin, Senate President Scutari, and Governor Murphy need to hear from you. Please also send to your networks, families, colleagues, et.
Please use this link (thanks to Easter Seals for the electronic advocacy link) to act. Thank you for your commitment and dedication to advocacy to support sustainable IDD services!
