ABLE Act to be Unveiled and Introduced

On Tuesday, November 15, The Arc will join Rep. Ander Crenshaw (R-FL), Sen. Robert Casey (D-PA), Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), and other organizations in outlining the Achieving a Better Life Experience Act of 2011 (ABLE Act) at a press conference on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol.  The ABLE Act would allow for tax advantaged savings accounts for individuals with disabilities for certain expenses, like education, housing, and transportation.  The bill would help individuals with disabilities maintain their health, independence, and quality of life.  The Arc’s CEO, Peter V. Berns, will speak along with representatives of the National Down Syndrome Society, Autism Speaks, and other disability organizations.
