N.D. Autism Bill Raises Concerns Over Privacy, Funds

Legislation and Healthcare North Dakota Autism News

March 30, 2013- "N.D. Autism Bill Raises Concerns Over Privacy, Funds"- Senate Bill 2193 in North Dakota creates a database of information about individuals with autism and establishes the position of a state autism coordinator.  Many families have qualms with the new bill, citing that all it does is collect statistics on a population already known to exist, creates the purposeless position of “state autism coordinator”, and allocates $1.1 million dollars to fund all of the bill’s services, including $400,000 to the newly appointed state autism coordinator.
