Legislative Update: September 25, 2012

Governor Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 2370 (Mansoor), known as the Shriver “R-Word” Act, which would revise various statutes to refer to a person with an intellectual disability in replacement of the term “mental retardation.”

Assemblyman Allan Mansoor (R – Costa Mesa) serves on the Assembly Health Committee and is also a member of the Assembly Budget Subcommittee on Health and Human Services, which makes critical decisions on the DDS budget.
