AUSTIN (April 23, 2013) -- Texas Autism Awareness Day will be celebrated Tuesday, April 30 at the Capitol and include a series of events, including opportunities to meet with lawmakers to advocate for SB.1484, a bill that would eliminate the age 10 cap on benefits under the state's existing autism insurance reform law.

Judith Ursitti, Autism Speaks' director of state government affairs, will join with representatives from the Autism Society, fellow parents, advocates and lawmakers to celebrate the day and push for SB.1484 as well as HB.3276 which would require autism screening between the ages of 18 to 24 months.
