Governor signs bill addressing autism spectrum disorder services

Politics - Government

A bill aimed at helping people with autism is now law. 

The governor signed House Bill 322, which adds a new section to the Public Assistance Act requiring medical assistance coverage for those under the autism spectrum without age and dollar limits. 

Families coping with autism says it gives them some certainty they’ll get the coverage they need. 

The governor has until Friday to sign any outstanding legislation. Any bill she doesn’t sign is automatically vetoed.
