I watch in horror. Why not just hold the people accountable for this mess in the first place? Why do we always have to increase the size of government with stupid laws that are unenforceable?
Lawmakers and Parents Testify In Support Of Bill That Will Protect Those with Autism from Phony Therapists
Hartford: Senate Majority Leader Martin Looney (D-New Haven), Senator Bob Duff (D-Norwalk), and House Minority Leader Lawrence Cafero (R-Norwalk) joined parents from Norwalk at a public hearing today to support Senate Bill 799, AN ACT CONCERNING MISREPRESENTATION AS A BOARD CERTIFIED BEHAVIOR ANALYST.
It was prompted by the case of a woman who was found guilty in 2010 of forging credentials in order to treat autistic children throughout Fairfield County. Stacy Lore, who was hired by both Norwalk’s and Weston’s public schools, reportedly charged taxpayers and parents more than $400,000 for what proved to be fraudulent services.
The proposed bill would crack down on people who fraudulently represent themselves as board certified behavior analysts—primarily for the treatment of children with autism. The penalty for this new criminal offense would be up to 5 years in prison and up to a $500 fine for each offense—with each instance of patient contact or consultation constituting a separate offense. That is the penalty under Connecticut law for fraudulently posing as a speech, occupational or physical therapist.
Ugh. Fire Ruotolo.
There, I feel better.
Sort of. It’s a live action joke isn’t.
Dude 1: Hey why are you guys doing near that street light?
Guys: Looking for our keys. We lost them in the parking lot.
Dude 1: So you lost them in the parking lot? But that’s over there.
Guys: Yeah but its dark over there, and we can see better over here.
