Legislation

title-line

Each year, CCDC is involved in working to get legislation pass or killed depending on the value or harm it could do to the disability community members.  On this page are links and information about public comment opportunities, alerts about actions needed to move the lawmakers in one direction or the other, and other information regarding legislation changes and issues affecting the local, state, and national disability community.

In addition to legislation, there are rules that change the way law is implemented. When a rule up for consideration, the public has the right to comment.
