Attention Nicky’s Law/Dana’s Law advocates! Please take a few minutes to use our action alert to send a letter to your Representative to ask them to support Representative Garballey’s amendment #397.
This amendment to the FY’22 budget will effectively pass H218/S117, “Measures to Enhance the Respect and Protection of Persons with a Disability: An Act updating terminology and investigative processes related to the protection of persons with disabilities.”
The bill would amend the current Disabled Person’s Protection Commission’s (DPPC) enabling statute to enhance protections and respect. This bill needs no appropriations yet will strengthen the DPPC’s mission and align with Nicky’s Law/Dana’s Law.
