A statement from our Executive Director Catherine Blakemore regarding the governor’s proposed budget

We applaud the governor for a budget that provides investments in critical programs for people with disabilities and those in poverty who have not been able so far to fully benefit from the accumulated budget surpluses. We are also pleased it assures the ongoing full funding of In-Home Supportive Services; expands special education services, provides funds to address homelessness and mental health services; commits to more affordable and universal health care; and expands the Earned Income Tax Credit. We look forward to working with the governor and the legislature through the budget process.

We are releasing our first legislative scorecard to educate the public and persons with disabilities on how their elected representatives in the California State Legislature voted on legislation critical to their needs. We hope that this scorecard is also helpful to state legislators as they consider important policies that impact people with disabilities.
