The end of the 2012 Nebraska legislative session finished with a flurry of activity on prenatal care, child welfare, and a number of Appleseed’s priority bills passing. You can read about these successes and other recent efforts in the latest edition of our bi-annual newsletter “At the Core.”
Inside you can read about the successful legislative effort to restore prenatal care to all low-income women and children in Nebraska, an issue Appleseed and our community partners vigorously supported for more than two years.
You can also read a breakdown of the package of child welfare legislation passed to chart a positive path forward for true reform of Nebraska’s system. Plus, see the recent lawsuit Appleseed filed against the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services for denying Medicaid coverage of treatment for children with autism and other developmental disabilities.
As always, we thank Appleseed’s core supporters and generous friends who continue to work together with us for justice, fairness, and opportunity for all.
