Ellen Taverna met briefly with Lauren Covington along with a large group of VA constituents for Autism Society of America Hill Day on 7/12. I thanked her for Rep. Connolly???s support of the DIA. I asked if we could meet to discuss expanding VA House cosponsors. She mentioned also wanting to talk about other disability related bills. I will follow up this week to schedule a meeting.
