It's Time to Take Action!

We are hearing that the Obama administration understands that the proposed companionship rules will hurt consumer directed programs, institutionalize people and undercut our right to make decisions about our own bodies, but they intend to release them anyway...BEFORE Labor Day!

Their solution is that the Department of Labor won’t enforce the rules.  

That just doesn’t cut it!
Take Action Now!

Even if DOL won’t enforce them, states will still require consumer directed programs to follow labor law, including the rules that DOL says it won’t enforce.

States that select the Community First Choice Option MUST follow ALL labor laws.

Beside that, there are plenty lawyers out there who will sue people for not following the rules whether DOL is enforcing them or not!

A promise from DOL that they won't enforce the rules is an EMPTY PROMISE!

The three minutes they gave us to make our case to Secretary Perez was an INSULT!

The impact on people with disabilities and our attendants will be PROFOUND!

Tell the White House and your elected representatives that the disability community needs to be brought to the table and not be steamrolled over by an administration that wants a good PR event!
