Florida House Approved Two Bills Catering To Disabled Children

Two bills have been approved by the Florida legislature and are now headed to Governor Rick Lynn Scott that aim to give educational and financial opportunities for children with cognitive disabilities in the state, the San Antonio Express-News reported on April 24.

The Florida House of Representatives approved Senate Bill 642, which stipulates tax-free savings accounts for the disabled that would not count against eligibility for Medicaid or Social Security disability benefits. Additionally, the House approved Senate Bill 602, which would expand the coverage of children eligible for vouchers that would cover special education programs. The coverage now includes children with autism and muscular dystrophy.
