Disability Issues at Top of List for State and Federal Lawmakers

Friday, April 1, 2022

For many years advocates have told their stories and hoped it would help their legislative officials make better laws.  This year advocates have been telling their stories, and people are listening.  President Joe Biden has asked for a big investment in home and community based services, and back home our state legislators are trying to do the same. In this issue of infoNET, we want to turn our focus to Washington DC, with a bit more about what's going on here in Iowa.  

The Iowa Legislative Session is nearly over; it may very well be done by the time you get the print version of this newsletter.  That's why we want to spend more time talking about what Iowa's congressional representatives, the US Representatives and US Senators that work in Washington DC on behalf of Iowans, can do to make home and community based services more available to Iowans with disabilities.  

It's also a good time to note that if you want more up-to-date news, please sign up for the Iowa DD Council's infoNET email reports.  We now have a short weekly "This Week at the Capitol" report that comes out every Monday during the legislative session,a short weekly "Capitol Snapshot" video that covers the biggest issues of the week, and the longer mailed (four times/year) newsletter like this one.  Please email or call us if you want to be added to our email list: 800.452.1936 or
