Autism Speaks is grateful for the leadership of Rep. Mike Doyle and Rep. Chris Smith to advance legislative priorities to help the autism community in future COVID-19 legislation passed by Congress. Autism Speaks applauds their leadership as chairs of the autism caucus and calls on Congress to appropriate emergency funding for HCBS, IDEA and HRSA supported telehealth programs. On Wednesday, April 15, Reps. Smith and Doyle sent this letter to congressional leaders urging them to include additional supports for people with autism and other disabilities in the next round of COVID-19 legislation.
