It was announced today that he and Mississippi Attorney General Jim
Hood are leading a bipartisan coalition of 47 attorneys general calling
upon Congress to authorize the Autism CARES Act of 2019. This
legislation provides federal support for research into autism spectrum
disorders (“ASD”) and services to those affected by these conditions.

“The United States is a caring and compassionate nation,” Attorney
General Hill said. “As Americans, we must stand together to help
alleviate the challenges imposed by ASD upon families across the
country.”

A previous version of this legislation is set to expire
on Sept. 30, 2019. The Autism CARES Act of 2019 currently exists as
H.R. 1058 in the U.S. House of Representatives and S. 427 in the U.S.
Senate. Congress began addressing autism in 2000 with the first
enactment of the bill. The Autism CARES Act of 2019 will continue
Congress’ ongoing mission to ensure that those living with ASD receive
the necessary support and research.

“We are committed to
providing a wide array of programs and services to support children and
adults with autism, and their families,” Attorney General Hood said.
“The Act responds to this national concern with a cohesive inter-agency
effort, including programs for America’s rural and underdeveloped
communities.”
