It’s Time for Suggestions for 2019-20 Public Policy Agenda

The Arc and its partner organizations have begun the process to revise the Public Policy Agenda (sometimes referred to as “legislative goals”) to prepare for 2019-2020 as we look toward a new Congress (116th) convening in January. Chapters of The Arc are welcome to submit comments regarding additions, modifications, or revisions based on the current document (available here on the web). Please send comments to Marty Ford ( by July 27, with the subject line “Comments on 2019-2020 Public Policy Agenda”. Please note that bill names or numbers will not appear in the document; enacted legislation is referred to by name, while pending legislation or proposals are described in concept. More details will be forthcoming to State Presidents and Executives.
