Autism Legislative Day January 13

Autism Legislative Day Thursday, January 13 at 9 a.m. The Virginia Autism Project asks you to join Autism Speaks and other grassroots parents for their first in a series of Legislative Days on Thursday, January 13 at 9 a.m. at the General Assembly Building (GAB) in Richmond.

They will meet in the East Conference Room on the Third Floor of the General Assembly Building, 910 Capitol St # 200, Richmond, VA 23219-3400.

When arriving at the GAB, they ask for you to  come up the steps inside and go through a security line (they x-ray your bags) then go around to the elevators and come up to the Third Floor East Conference Room.

But before Thursday, call your legislator and make an appointment to see them on Thursday.

Tell them:

  • you are a constituent and are coming to talk to them about the autism insurance reform bill and
  • you will be staying for when they convene in session and will be sitting up in the Gallery and would like to be recognized.

Senator Howell, patron of the autism insurance reform bill will speak; Angie Bezik is a lobbyist with Principle Advantage and there will be  an opportunity for questions about the bill. Attendees will be given talking-points and someone will acompany you to your appointment if you don’t want to go alone.
