California Lawmakers Unveil Legislative Effort on Autism
Date:4/1/2008

Package of bills crafted based on California Legislative Blue Ribbon

Commission on Autism report

SACRAMENTO, Calif., April 2, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Lawmakers will unveil a comprehensive legislative package of eight bills to address the issues related to the rise in diagnoses of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in California. A press conference will be held at the State Capitol on April 2nd at 11:00am. The bills were inspired by a report issued by the California Legislative Blue Ribbon Commission on Autism.

"This Commission was charged with providing real solutions and recommendations to improve the lives of individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and their families," said Senate pro Tempore Don Perata (D-Oakland), who authored the resolution that created the commission (SCR 51, 2005).

The Commission consists of health experts, family members, business leaders, educators and researchers and is chaired by Sen. Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento).

"The increase in children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder affects families, schools and communities all over California," Steinberg said. "Today this Legislature is responding strongly to the challenges this disorder poses to the State."

After conducting extensive public hearings and town-hall meetings throughout California, the Commission submitted its findings and recommendations to the Governor and Legislature in its report: An Opportunity to Achieve Real Change for Californians with Autism Spectrum Disorders; September 2007.
