Good Morning (Afternoon) Chairman Frank and Committee Members,
My name is Lauren Gerken, Public Policy Analyst for the Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities, and I am here testifying on the bill. HB 168 will address a critical need among families of children with disabilities, without requiring exorbitant changes in provider operations or asking them to go beyond the scope of what is federally required by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
This bill promotes opportunities in more ways than one:
Thank you so much for your time today, and I am more than happy to answer any questions.
