On April 23rd, I wrote the following email to Logan Hoover.
I am writing to enquire if Rep Reed has decided to cosponsor the Disability Integration Act (HR.555)?
As I am sure you know, community based services are more cost effective than institutional programs and have been proven to contain Medicaid costs. This bill also does not interfere with how states manage their Medicaid programs or negatively impact how organizations are funded. While the bill would ensure citizens have access to community based services, it does not force the closure of long term care facilities or restrict the opportunity to choose an institutional placement. There is no opposition to this bill. It is supported by the entire Disability Community including Paralyzed Veterans of America, the Arc, Association of Programs for Rural Independent Living, the Consortium of Citizens with Disabilities (CCD), the Lutheran Services in America Disability Network, and the National Council on Aging.
By supporting this bill, he will ensure no citizen who needs assistance is denied the Constitutional right to Life and Liberty. As a disabled D23 constituent, I appreciate how much Rep Reed believes in the value of family and the need to support the elderly and veterans with various community based programs to ensure independence. I require 24/7 care and with community supports I have been able to attend college and am active in my community. Given his stated positions, it would be inconceivable that he would not believe in supporting this bill.
Should you or Rep Reed have any questions or concerns, please contact me or Amy Bos in Representative Sensenbrenner (WI D5).
I look forward to hearing from you.

On August 30th I received a call from Logan Hoover informing me that the congressman would not be signing on after consulting the local and State ARC as well as a local resource center. They had expressed concerns over how the bill would affect their funding.

The Advocacy Team at CDR met with district office staffer Taryn Windheim at CDR's legislative breakfast in Geneva on July 12th 2018. She indicated she thought DIA was something the Congressman would support. She received a DIA packet.
