Senator Doug Berger Receives Award!
Senator Doug Berger received The Arc of North Carolina Senate Legislator of the Year Award last evening at our Annual Awards Banquet. Thanks to Senator Berger’s leadership during the budget negotiations, we were able to secure 300 new CAP/MR-DD waiver slots. Senator Berger was also the Senate sponsor of the Offer Sign Language in Schools and Colleges and voted to support the Disability History and Awareness bill. Senator Berger spoke passionately about the need for people with disabilities to gain full independence. He highlighted the need for full implementation of Ticket to Work in our state. We congratulate Senator Doug Berger on his award.
