Urge your State representatives to support Assembly Bill 279

THIS FRIDAY, May 26th, AB279 is being decided upon by the California State Appropriations Committee.  Contact your State Assemblymember or Senator in the next two days and urge them to support AB279, which would allow Regional Centers across the state to give rate adjustments to organizations like UCPLA in order to offset expenses from new local minimum wage laws.
