"If this issue is about anything else, anything else -- taxes, anything -- I would tell you: 'Don't do it. Let's give it back and do it right and get it completely right.' But it has to do with children and with families. I think we need to take a step forward.''
- Florida House Speaker Rep. Marco Rubio
In the above quote Florida House Speaker Rep. Marco Rubio explained why he recommended against further debate on the Steven A. Geller Autism Coverage Act requiring all private insurance groups in Florida to cover autism medical aid. As reported by UPI the proposed Act could have been slowed by further debate concerning coverage of other disabilities.
It is refreshing to see a political leader who understands the urgency, and the need, to take action to provide medical coverage for autism.
