Information Only: The FASD Respect Act - An Update
What a journey this 117th legislative session has been. The FASD Respect Act (HR4151/S2238) was on target to be passed as a stand-alone bill on December 22, 2022 in the Senate with language agreed upon by bi-partisan Senate HELP committee leadership and the next day in the House but was blocked at the last minute by one Senator. To say that we are disappointed is an understatement.
While this is an emotional blow, I can say with all sincerity, we left it all out on the field. This bill, with your help, progressed further than any other FASD legislation has in the last 20 years. Over 1300 advocates have had almost 500 meetings with lawmakers and their staff. This was the largest FASD push for equity in our history as a community.
