Autism insurance bill should not be blocked

I would like to express my gratitude to so many representatives in the house for answering my calls and my emails and for supporting our family by backing house bill 74, the autism insurance bill. My son is one of many Alaskans who experience autism. Our family fights every day to give him the things in life that so many of us take for granted. He struggles to eat, sleep, and to be able to go to school. For us, this bill is hope, a chance for him to have an education and happy life instead of a facility placement. Representative Keller is holding this bill so it will not pass. It would be a shame if the voice of Alaskans were ignored because of one opinion. Let’s take a stand, Alaskans support HB 74.
