Your elected officials face very difficult choices everyday, and the decisions they make affect your life.  On the issues that matter most to you, are you okay if those decisions are made without your input? 

Now more than ever, it is important for people affected by disability to speak up.  The US Congress must cut billions in spending. The Iowa Legislature is in the middle of a major redesign of the state's mental health and disability services system, and funding for it is still up in the air.
