Senator Troy Singleton
ABCD EIPA “Legislative Champion Award” Recipient
We were deeply honored and relieved when but a few days after ABCD’s meeting with the Senator’s Chief of Staff, she contacted us to announce that Senator Singleton would sponsor a budget resolution for Early Intervention, prior to the publication of said proposed budget! A budget resolution that ABCD did not have to ask for, let alone nag and beg for. In the end, the long slog of testimonials, meetings, calls, alerts, and YouTube videos only worked for us because Senator Singleton showed up early and never backed down.
On behalf of the Alliance for the Betterment of Citizens with Disabilities, we thank Senator Singleton for his support in securing a hard-won and unprecedented increase for Early Intervention providers in the FY’22 Budget; preventing the erosion and ensuring the access of early intervention services to infants and toddlers who have developmental disabilities and delays.
