Autism bill passes state Legislature unanimously |

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- A bill that would provide health insurance for screening, diagnosis, treatment and therapy for individuals with autism passed the state Legislature unanimously on Friday, a crucial step for families seeking enhanced care for their children, said a Grant City mother.
