Rally Held To Promote MO ABLE Act

St. Louis, MO (KTRS)   A  G-O-P lawmaker is pushing for Governor Jay Nixon to sign the MO ABLE Act.

Senator Eric Schmitt along with disability rights advocates held a rally Monday morning at Paraquad in St. Louis to promote this legislation, which would allow families to save for the future expenses of children with disabilities in the same way many Missourians leverage the MOST 529 accounts to save for college.

Schmitt says he understands firsthand  the challenges facing these families. “Our son Steven is pretty profoundly affected…non-verbal and so through that experience we’ve got to know some many people who have faced a lot of these challenges and it’s given us a different insight that I can bring to the Capitol.”

Schmitt also says he’s confident that the Governor will sign this legislation, Senate Bill 174.
