Sen. Charlie Bethel Releases Statement on Senate Bill 1 Vote Today

ATLANTA (January 29, 2015)  |  Sen. Charlie Bethel (R – Dalton) has released the following statement on the Georgia State Senate’s unanimous approval of Senate Bill 1 (SB 1) today:

“My Senate colleagues have spent a great deal of time understanding the depth and complexity of this issue. It’s clear today that we all saw the bigger picture—and that’s the reality of a Georgia where we haven’t acted to address this issue. SB 1 will provide some much needed financial and emotional relief to parents by expanding access to early intervention and behavioral therapy programs. I hope my colleagues in the House will take a similar path with SB 1 in order to give autistic children in our state the chance to reach their full potential in life.”
