LB 901: A BILL FOR AN ACT relating to appropriations; to designate funds to be used for services for persons with developmental disabilities.
Currently there are 1,766 Nebraskans on the wait list for services. This bill proposes to fund the services for those persons with developmental disabilities who are on the waiting list and past their date of need for services as of November 14, 2011.
A hearing has been scheduled on Monday, January 30th at 1:30pm in room 1524 at the Capitol.
We are being told that it is anticipated/expected that they will push to not fund wait list for people over 21 with disabilities needing services.
Several disability groups are coming together working to rally as many people as possible to attend the hearing. If you’d like to speak that is fine but mostly they just need people to help fill the room. Please contact Amy Svoboda at 402-742-4521 for more information!
