Share this page

At ANCOR’s September Leadership Summit in September 2017, four U.S. Senators were selected to receive the ANCOR Congressional Leadership Award for their protection of key Medicaid programs that provide services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  ANCOR chose Senators John McCain (R-AZ), Bob Casey (D-PA), Susan Collins (R-ME), and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) to receive this honor.  Last week, in conjunction with ANCOR’s Government Relations Retreat, ANCOR CEO, Barbara Merrill, and Government Relations staff joined ANCOR Member Emily Ennis to present the award in person to Senator Murkowski. Senator Murkowski spent an hour in discussion with ANCOR discussing her ongoing commitment to protecting disability service providers.
