California Senate Bill introduced to increase disability services funding

2 Jul

I just got an email forwarded to me from Senator Beall’s office.  The Senator has introduced a bill to increase funding levels for the regional center system.   Be ready to advocate for passage of this bill.

 

Here’s the email:

Today, Senator Beall introduced SB X 2-1 in response to the developmental community service system crisis. He is joined by Senators Pavley and Monning who are principal coauthors.

 

Specifically, SB X2  1 mandates:

 

  • Provides a 10% increase in the funding paid to a regional center and purchase-of-service vendors;

  • Requires funding to enable the regional center and the regional center’s purchase-of-service vendors to fund certain costs related to minimum wage requirements; and

  • Requires the Department of Developmental Services to develop a 10-year financial sustainability plan.
