2015 Legislative Session Update

Legislative Advocacy Center OSAC had a powerful impact this past legislative session to improve our reputation at the State Capitol and to expand our advocacy efforts to help others with disabilities. Our goals for the 2015 legislative session were to have OSAC members be recognized a professionals and to advance policies that improve the lives of people with disabilities.

IMG_0572During the 2015 legislative session, OSAC members met with most of the legislators and testified on bills important to our goals. The bills that we were particularly concerned with were SB 555 (Ending Subminimum Wages), SB 777 (The ABLE Act), and SB 616 (Restoring the Fairview Trust). If you would like to learn more about these bills, visit OSAC’s Advocacy Tab to see our Legislative Fact Sheets and watch more videos!

We have included videos from this past legislative session, a few photos of us at the DD Advocacy Days and a presentation about our 2015 legislative session!
