Sen. Casey Rallies Support for ABLE During Light It Up Blue

NEW YORK (April 3, 2012) -- Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) said he will step up efforts to build support in the U.S. Senate for the ABLE bill during a Light It Up Blue ceremony at the Empire State Building. Senator Casey, the prime Senate sponsor of ABLE (S.1872), joined with Autism Speaks Co-founder Bob Wright at the event.

ABLE has 14 Senate sponsors and over 125 House sponsors. The bill would establish tax-advantaged accounts for families to save for the future needs of their children with disabilities, including autism.
