THE LEGISLATURE IS CURRENTLY IN NEGOTIATIONS FOR 2011-12 FUNDING.
The House and Senate are working on the budget now and can not agree on funding of the “Resources to Address Waiver Deficit” funding.
The House has added an additional $110,376,456 to cover those currently receiving services under the DD waiver for next fiscal year, the Senate has not added this additional funding.
We must encourage the Legislative Leadership to adopt the House position.
Since the issue was not resolved at the committee level, it was bumped up to Rep. Denise Grimsley and Sen. JD Alexander, Appropriations Chairs.
From there it will go to the House Speaker Dean Cannon and Senate President Mike Haridopolos.
PLEASE TAKE A MINUTE TO EMAIL LEADERSHIP (Below)
Encourage them to ADOPT THE HOUSE POSITION FOR DD FUNDING!!
Thank you for your advocacy and for taking action. It really does make a difference!
