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.
