Lawmakers stall on funding discussions for developmentally disability programs
Long Beach Press-Telegram

Efforts to find ways to boost funding for programs for those with developmental disabilities appear to have stalled in Sacramento, and some organizations fear the matter may not be raised until the end of the year, or in January.

The topic was to be discussed during two special sessions, one called in June after Gov. Jerry Brown approved the state’s $167 billion budget, then after the regular legislative session closed on Sept. 11.

So far, there have been no formal statements by legislators on when the matter might be discussed.
