On August 30th, 2018, C4CI sent an email to Xenia Ruiz (Xenia.Ruiz@mail.house.gov) asking why is not a cosponsor of DIA and whether the representative would commit to being an initial co-sponsor of DIA if elected to the next Congress.

On July 24th, 2018, NCIL Advocate Jim Baker met with staffer Xenia Ruiz. Discussed DIA, IL funding, and ADA. Supportive at all levels.

Staff and board members from DIRECT CIL in Tucson (our service area covers part of the representative's district) met with Xenia Ruiz, Legislative Director, and talked about how DIA is already in line with the movement in public long term care in Az. We also mentioned the bipartisan support of the bill and the support of groups like the Paralyzed Veterans of America. She asked that we check back with her in a week to confirm that the representative will sponsor the bill.
