Advocates to Visit South Carolina Capitol after Governor Vetoes Autism Insurance Bill

South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford has vetoed legislation that would amend the state's insurance rules to provide for autism services coverage. This news comes tonight from Lorri Unumb, a leading advocate for the bill called "Ryan's law" and named for her son who has autism. The bill had large margins of support in both the state House and Senate, so advocates may lobby for a veto override.

More information when it becomes available.
