Bill Would Help Parents Save for Future of Children with Special Needs

When Michael Carney told his daughter Olivia about her meeting with U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, the red-headed 6-year-old with Down Syndrome said she'd need a new dress.
A new outfit was no problem, but for Olivia to have the fulfilling and independent life her parents envision, they will have to put money away to pay for her care as an adult.
Speaking Monday to parents and advocates of the intellectually and developmentally disabled, Casey said he's hopeful a measure to help families like the Carneys plan for the future will soon become law.
