Dispatch from the GA: House Budget Work Still Going
Representative Beverly Earle offered an amendment to the CAP/MR-DD Tier Waiver Special Provision. The amendment raised the funding limit on the Tier 1 support waiver from $15,000 to $20,000. The amendment was supported by LMEs, multiple advocacy groups, and the developmental disability community. After a spirited discussion, this amendment passed.
We are very thankful for the leadership of Representative Beverly Earle and her advocacy for this amendment.
