Rep. Larson Celebrates House Vote with Connecticut Military Families

HARTFORD, CT (May 22, 2012) -- Rep. John Larson of Connecticut joined with local military families to celebrate and raise awareness of last week's vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on a measure that would end insurance discrimination against Department of Defense military families caring for dependents with autism. Approved as an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act, the measure moves next to the Senate.

Larson spoke of how he was introduced to the issue by Rachel (right) and Sergeant Major William Kenyon, a Connecticut National Guard family from Manchester.
