Urge your legislator to SIGN ON to the 10% increase letter by Senator Jim Beall, Jr.
The Lanterman Coalition Urges the Legislature to Support the Developmental Disabilities Funding Proposal in the Healthcare Funding Reform in Special Session.
. . . The Lanterman Coalition has been involved with the Administration in crafting this proposal, and we appreciate all the hard work of the administration to bring us to a point where we can look forward to a serious infusion of funding (nearly an estimated $420 mil total funds) beginning soon to address a variety of serious funding shortfalls. They worked with all of us to reach a consensus and a reasonable funding package reflecting those priorities. We are on board with its broad and inclusive provisions and believe this package for the Developmental Disabilities service system is worthy of unanimous bipartisan and bicameral approval by all 120 legislators in California. Thank you to the administration and to legislative leadership on both sides and in both houses. It is time for us to step forward together in support of the 300,000 Californians with developmental disabilities!
