Hi all,
    Chris Tisdale, Diana Dawn, Cari Ford and myself attended  the 
Governor's signing of the bill this morning at Paraquad.  The ceremony  was held 
indoors (thank god!) was well-attended and lasted about an hour.   I have some 
shots of the Governor and some of the speakers.

ST. LOUIS  (AP) — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has signed legislation
addressing several  physical and mental disability issues.
The governor held a signing ceremony  Tuesday at Paraquad Independent
Living Center in St. Louis.

The  legislation provides in part that a disability or disease  doesn't
automatically diminish an adult's parental rights or disqualify  someone
from being an adoptive or foster parent.

Another section  requires that parking spaces at least 96 inches wide be
set aside in new  parking lots or lots that are being restriped.

The measure also  replaces the term "mental retardation" in state law
with "intellectual  disability" or "developmental disability."


Disability  legislation is HB555 and HB648
