The House of Representatives approved HR 2005, the Combating Autism Reauthorization Act of 2011 on Tuesday. Congressman Rivera was a co-sponsor of the bill.

"The Combating Autism Reauthorization Act extends funding for crucial federal autism programs through 2014. The bill provides funds for research programs for autism and other developmental disorders as well programs for education, early detection and intervention. It also facilitates coordination of federal resources to provide support and services for people with autism and their families," Congressman Rivera said.

"I am proud to co-sponsor a bill that generates greater awareness about autism and related spectrum disorders all over the country, and makes benefits more easily accessible for those who need it most."
