Ellen Taverna met with Meghan Oakes on 8/9/18 as a part of the Women???s March Disability Caucus Hill Day. She seemed very moved by the personal stories related to the DIA. She was recently looking into the EMPOWER Care Act since she has heard from several IA constituents about it. She recently visited a community group home in IA that housed people with disabilities and provided employment workshops. Senator Ernst cares a great deal about IA???s elderly and disabled population. Very important for her to keep hearing from constituents. I said I would follow up with her about DIA after the recess.
