Missouri Lawmakers Send Autism Bill to Governor

JEFFERSON CITY -- Lawmakers sent to the governor Wednesday a bill requiring Missouri health insurers to cover therapies and treatments for autism.
Gov. Jay Nixon, a Democrat, has long supported the mandate and called its passage "a dramatic and positive step forward." If he signs the bill, it will go into effect Jan. 1.
Passage of the autism insurance bill is the culmination of years of legislative efforts and lengthy discussions over the last four months.
