On April 8, S. Woodward, S. Poost, and K. Carroll stopped by the office and asked to meet with Zo?? Oreck or Diana Banik. Neither was in the office but the ADAPTers stressed that Jeffries was the only one not on the bill. They were told to email to ask to set up a meeting, K. Carroll sent an email upon leaving.

I am reaching out to ask if Representative Jeffries will cosponsor the Disability Integration Act again. The DIA was reintroduced last week as HR. 555 (and in the Senate it was introduced by Minority Leader Schumer as S. 117). The bill is both bicameral and bipartisan, and already has 52 cosponsors in the House. Last session Rep. Jeffries cosponsored the bill, then known as HR 2472. The bill is substantially the same with minor technical edits which were suggested by AARP.
Will Representative Jeffries cosponsor DIA?
