In January, we emailed and left information for you about H.R. 555 and emailed to follow up about the bill. On February 13th, I sent another email to follow up. I received a response that your office was still reviewing the bill. In April, a group of us met with you to discuss the bill and ask why the representative was not a cosponsor yet. You said that you needed to discuss with Representative Deutch. On May 7th, I emailed again to ask that Representative Deutch cosponsor the Disability Integration Act. Today I called your office and left you a voicemail.
ADAPT will be in town next week and we would prefer to stop by your office to thank Representative Deutch for his support. It is critical that your office review the emails from ADAPT about the Disability Integration Act and get back to us about Representative Deutch cosponsoring DIA before we arrive.

On May 14th, E. Jones called Deutch's D.C. office and spoke to Brett Tomes (intern) and asked to speak with Joel Richard. He was not available so Brett transferred her to his voicemail. She left the message that she would follow up via email and he could either call or email to confirm that he has received our correspondence.
