No funding delays for developmentally delayed kids
So what happens when a state has both a Democratic congress and Governor? Turns out, really, really good things. Including a bill signed by Governor Ritter earlier this week guaranteeing no funding delays for developmentally delayed kids (via 9News.com):
Gov. Bill Ritter (D-Colorado) signed Senate Bill 4 into law Tuesday at the annual lunch to benefit the Autism Society of Colorado. The measure would streamline the funding process for early medical intervention for families like the Efirds.
There are roughly 4,000 Colorado children, two percent of the state’s kids, with significant developmental delays.
Good things, man. Good things.
