Sheryl Grossman - Patrick Michaels Leg Corr. Dania Douglas from LFS and I had a really good 20 min meeting with him. He was somewhat knowledgeable on MFP and clearly understood independence, freedom, and cost savings of both MFP and DIA. Was interested in Heritage Foundation information as well as the Centene development re DIA. Was really interested to know which states are using CFCO (looked up for him, TX is one). He played up Cornyn???s work in the MH space. We encouraged them to see this as an opportunity to take the lead with the Disability Community and sign on. I am following up with additional information and answers to several good questions that he had. This was a much more substantive meeting than I have ever had in the past with their office.

ADAPT met with Jake Carnes on May 16th. Cornyn was on the floor but Jake wasn't qualified to answer questions. Follow up another staffer named Steve. Stephen_Reynolsa@cornyn.senate.gov

3/6/18: Laura spoke to Stephen about DIA and MFP. Gave 2 pager on S.910 and said he will look it over. (Not DIA but important, said they are waiting on Portman's office about how they plan on funding MFP before signing on S.2227.)
