Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) Applauds House Action on Combating Autism Act
SILVER SPRING, MD (September 20, 2011) — Today the House of Representatives passed the bipartisan “Combating Autism Reauthorization Act of 2011” (H.R. 2005) by voice vote. This bill extends the Combating Autism Act of 2006 for an additional three years without an increase in funding levels and allows research, training and state and national coordination activities to continue. Since its enactment, the law has impacted millions of individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities and their families. Congress must reauthorize the Combating Autism Act before September 30 when many of its important provisions will expire.
