On 6/19, ADAPT members stopped by Beyer's office. They knew that at the action in May the group had gotten Beyer to agree to vote yes if the bill comes to the floor, however they were hoping to change that to a cosponsorship. Applicable staff was not available and the chief of staff said they were still "running it through the process".

K. Carroll wrote a follow up email on 5/16:
Dear Ms. Schisler,
This email is to confirm I left a message on your office voicemail yesterday, May 15th, regarding the Disability Integration Act, HR 555. Can you tell me if the Congressman will be cosponsoring this bill? ADAPT will be in town next week and would like to be able to stop by your office to thank the Congressman for his support of disability rights.
Please give me a call at (585) 546-7510. You can also email me back at this address..

On July 24, Doris Day and other NCIL Advocates met dropped off the priorities with the front desk and specifically brought up their hope that Beyer would co-sponsor DIA and the bi-partisan support behind it. They brought up his previous support of ECNVAIL and hope he would co-sponsor.

Ellen Taverna along with a group from the Autism Society of America Hill Day met with Kate Schisler on 7/12. We thanked her for Beyer's support of the disability community and being a member of the Autism Caucus. I brought up the DIA and she mentioned having concerns about implementation in VA. She didn't elaborate but wanted to follow up with me after the meeting. She said that it seemed like something Beyer would support but needed some clarification on the bill. I told her I would follow up soon.
