Opposition to MiCASSA

VOR opposes S. 683, the Community Choice Act of 2009, introduced by Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA), and H.R. 1670, introduced by Rep. Danny Davis (D-IL). In past years, this legislation was called MiCASSA. If passed, the unintended effect of this legislation will be the elimination of necessary services for citizens with severe and profound mental retardation.
