Good for Nevada Gov. Gibbons
I mainly focus on national policy, but I want to draw attention especially to positive news at the state and local levels. Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons signed an executive order Wednesday creating the Commission on Autism Spectrum Disorders, charged with implementing recommendations from the Nevada Autism Task Force. Commissions and task forces may just sound like more bureacracy, but the task force had made 146 recommendations to improve autism services and screening, and it's good they won't be forgotten now that the group is no more.
