On Monday of this week the Assembly and the Senate voted to REJECT the Governor's proposed takeover of Early Intervention by the insurance industry.
This is a stunning victory for all of us who care about E.I. However this is not the end of the budget process. Now the Legislature must negotiate with the Governor to arrive at a budget agreement that will be supported by both the Legislature and the Governor. The budget needs to be finalized before April 1 so we will keep you closely apprised as the process proceeds and also let you know what more we may need to do to insure the integrity of our Early Intervention programs.
