Supporters of expanded health care coverage for autism are pushing to get changes approved in Michigan by the end of the year.
The Democratic-led Michigan House has voted to require offering better insurance coverage for behavioral therapies for autistic children. The Republican-led Senate hasn't voted on the legislation.
The bills would die if not approved by the end of the year. Legislation would have to be reintroduced next year.
The Autism Alliance of Michigan and Autism Speaks released a video Tuesday featuring Republican Lt. Gov.-elect Brian Calley speaking in favor of the legislation.
Calley, a member of the state House from Portland, has a daughter diagnosed with autism.
