Clay's Law

The most amazing thing is happening TODAY! In Utah, state senate is voting on Clay's law, which would require insurance companies to partially pay for behavioral therapies that many children with autism desperately need. Do you think this is no big deal because you don't live in Utah? Well just think of how ground breaking this is... and if it can happen here, surely it can happen in other states. I for one will be sitting on the edge of my seat to see whether this passes today.
My husband and I moved to Utah in the beginning of our marriage to attend college here. Little did we know that by the time we would almost be done with the college thing, that we would have a little son with autism. Although we always thought through these years that we would probably leave the state after graduation, if clay's law passes, Utah may not be able to get rid of us.
