On Sunday, May 24, 2009 ABC Channel 7’s Karen Meyer did a compelling segment on Senate Bill 68 (SB68) of which is legislation mandating insurance companies to provide insurance coverage with no age restrictions. The segment included Senator Ira Silverstein who is the sponsor for SB68, Dana Craig of LIFE Center for Independent Living and JulieAnn Chavez of DuPage Center for Independent Living. If you missed the segment, you can still view it online. Senate Bill 68 on ABC 7 Chicago
The deadline for SB68 is May 31st! Please take the time to call your legislator and ask him/her to co-sponsor Senate Bill 68!
