June 25, 2014

(June 25, 2014) -- This morning, Autism Speaks Co-Founder Bob Wright talked on C-SPAN about the rising rates of autism and the need for funding for autism research. The U.S. House of Representatives last night approved a five-year extension of federal funding for autism research, monitoring and other activities with strong bipartisan support. A Senate committee plans to take up the bill tomorrow as Congress races a September 30 deadline to get final legislation before President Obama.
