SB468 – Bill on Self Determination – Update
(Shared by our friends at ASA)
SB 468 was signed into law by Governor Brown today. It is because of all of the hard work of parents and individuals with developmental disabilities that we have made it to this point. We heard from a high level administration official that they have never received so many letters and calls on a human services bill before.
Thank you to everyone for all of your help!! There is still a lot of work to be done and we will be turning to you to join the Advisory Committees of each regional center to ensure that the bill is implemented as the legislature intended.
We are indebted to Senator Bill Emmerson, Senator Emmerson and his staff, as well as the other authors – Senator Jim Beall, Assemblymember (now Senator) Holly Mitchell, and Assemblymember Wes Chesbro who all worked so hard on behalf of Californians with developmental disabilities.
Great job ASA!
