  Subject: [Nfbmo] Blind Medical Health Care update

  On April 30 the House refused to accept the Senate amendments to the 
  appropriations bill for the Department of Social Services (HB 2011) which 
  contains the provision to provide Health Care for persons getting Blind 
  pension. Therefore a conference committee will be appointed half from the 
  Senate and half from the House. Rep. Silvey  is the bill’s initial sponsor 
  so he will undoubtably be on the committee.
  I spoke with Rep. Kelly’s office and two important things are happening. The 
  Conference committee will be appointed today. and secondly, the conference 
  will meet and the bill will be voted on this   week by the full House and 
  Senate.  We will not have much time to act at all once the committee is 
  appointed; but act we must.
  Until we are able to get the list of the conference committee members 
  everyone should perioically check House.MO.gov and do a bill search for 
  HB2011 and there should be a place where members of the Conference  will be 
  listed once the committee is formed. Email and call and have friends, 
  neighbors, and enemies call on our behalf.
