Combating Autism Reauthorization Act Passed by Senate and House

28 Sep

The Combating Autism Reauthorization Act has been passed by both houses of the US Legislature. President Obama is expected to sign this into law. The announcement from the Office of Autism Research Coordination is below.

Late Monday night, September 26, 2011, the Senate passed The Combating Autism Reauthorization Act (CARA) by voice vote. The bill was passed by the House of Representatives last week. The bill is now en route to the White House to be signed into law by President Obama. The reauthorization of this legislation will allow the continuation of the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC) and several other important Federal autism programs for three years, until September 30, 2014.

The Office of Autism Research Coordination looks forward to continuing to partner with Federal agencies and private organizations to facilitate the activities of the IACC and serve the autism community
