[Source: Disability Scoop]
Dozens of members of Congress are calling for the federal government to significantly ramp up its investment in autism-related activities by spending an additional $150 million on the developmental disorder.
The bipartisan request comes in a recent letter to leaders of the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies. The 90 members who signed the correspondence are hoping to see the additional funds included in appropriations for a handful of federal agencies for the next fiscal year, which starts in October.
