Ellen Taverna met with Michael Weis on 8/9/18 as a part of the Women???s March Disability Caucus Hill Day. I covered all the Women???s March talking points to protect Medicaid against block grants, per capita caps, work requirements and restricting reimbursements to Planned Parenthood affiliates. I also discussed DIA. Michael asked if DIA was moving in Committee. He wants to check in with Committee staff about next steps. He seemed impressed by the WI and House Republican support of the bill. He didn???t promise support of the DIA but did say that Senator Johnson is supportive of assisting individuals with disabilities having a choice to live independently and of a system that is cost effective.
