There's big stuff going on around here in Utah. It feels like a herd of dinosaurs have moved into the neighborhood. The good news is that if we can down one of them, our tribe will eat for a month. The bad news is that there is a very good chance one of us will get stomped on.
What am I blathering about? It's the 2012 legislative session. This year, there's a bill (HB69) that would mandate that insurers cover evidence-based treatments for autism. If you live in Utah, please e-mail your senator and representative to let them know you're for it. You can go here to find their contact info.
Apparently, being for HB69 means you also have to be against SB138. Unfortunately, 138 just passed its second reading - here's the vote.
I don't have a lot to more to say right now, but did want to share this video. I just saw it a couple of weeks ago for the first time and it made an impression on me. Enjoy:
