HB281 is no longer

Today, as I already said in my last post, I went to Annapolis to testify at a bill hearing for a bill about including disability rights/awareness education in schools for K-post secondary students. A parent of a child with Danny Walker syndrome who works for the Danny Walker syndrome association, someone who works for the Maryland Developmental Disabilities Council, and another friend from CDRC, as well as the Secretary of the MD Department of Disabilities testified. The two other people who testified told me they went to check and the bill did not pass the house. WTF??? Apparently they grouped it with a bunch of other "days" and people don't like days. But, they said African American Baseball day got voted on seperately and that passed. WTF???

If the bill is voted on on its own in the senate and is seen for its own merit it should pass. It's not a "day" or even a month. It's an educational initative. When it passes it goes back to the house. So if you are a Maryland resident, please find out who you're state senator is and urge them to support the bill. If you're reading this post I don't think I have to tell you how important it is.
