Senator Barack Obama on Autism Campaign 2008

Autism News

President Barack Obama signed a three-year extension of the Combating Autism Act Friday, the very day the law — and many of the programs it established — was set to expire.

The reauthorization Obama signed calls for $231 million annually through 2014 to fund everything from autism research to prevalence tracking, education, early identification and intervention programs.

It’s virtually identical to the original law first enacted in 2006.
