Taxpayers Against SC Bill S.1067

This petition made change with 105 supporters!

The South Carolina legislature has been working diligently to find a way to ensure that individuals with autism receive medically necessary treatment. At this time there is a “compromise” bill being considered by the Senate. The “compromise” is allegedly between the autism community and the insurance industry/BCBS.

Undoubtedly the Senators behind this bill believe they are serving the autism community but we have been little heard in this process and significantly misunderstood. Not only is S.1067 an unfair “compromise” it is actually a setback to the autism community. It is a setback because it condones the disparate treatment of the autism community in its pursuit of health insurance coverage. It condones isolating the autism community to be treated differently than everyone else. 

This impacts every taxpayer in South Carolina because S.1067 creates a State funded/subsidized program that will require money from the Sate budget. Please sign this petition and tell the South Carolina Senate that you do not want to pay for a program that is harmful to its intended beneficiaries. 

The Senate will consider this bill on Tuesday, March 20, 2018. Please take a second to sign this petition and set the Senate straight.
