House Rectifies Omission of References to Disability Grants in Appropriations Package

January 7, 2019

As an update to this previous ANCOR Capitol Correspondence story, ANCOR is pleased to report that the appropriations package introduced on January 3 in the House has corrected report language which omitted references to Kevin and Avonte’s Law. Previous report language did not mention this important set of grants, which assist with addressing wandering for people with disabilities, when listing federal assistance to state and federal law enforcement with efforts pertaining to wandering. ANCOR was a lead supporter of the legislation authorizing these grants, which became law last year.
