The Arc Maryland Hosts Developmental Disabilities Day at State Capitol, Continues Advocacy Effort in Legislative Committees

The Arc Maryland and other organizations in the Developmental Disability Coalition recently hosted Developmental Disabilities Day at the State Capitol.  There was a record turnout with 725 advocates in attendance.  Governor Larry Hogan attended the event to discuss his budget and his experience with a man with Down Syndrome who supported him while they were both receiving cancer treatment.  Advocates from The Arc Maryland also recently testified in favor of SB 475, the Crisis Resolution Waiting List bill, and the Maryland State Department of Education budget for increasing Autism Waiver slots.  Earlier that week, The Arc Maryland provided testimony in favor in HB 644, the Independent Living Tax Credit Act.
