Policy Priorities

Under federal law (P.L. 106-402) the Massachusetts Developmental Disabilities Council is mandated to work with and educate policymakers and the public about key policy issues that impact people with DD and their families.

The MDDC holds public input and bill sharing sessions and chooses a limited number of legislative priorities every two years (we can’t cover them all). We meet with policymakers about these priorities and provide testimony on bills. We also assist the public in doing the same. As an FYI, we do not lobby. We analyze potential impact and educate.
