(WGGB/WSHM) - Western Mass News is getting answers as Massachusetts lawmakers are working to pass a bill that would strengthen protections for wheelchair users in the state as many often find themselves in need of repairs without a replacement.

“I would not have any other option than going to an old manual chair or staying in bed because if I don’t have the chair, it will take forever to repair,” said Carmen Rosado.

Parents with kids with disabilities

Stavros is reaching out to all about our consumers to contact your representatives and senators to protect the rights of parents with children with disabilities.

Ask your representatives and senators to vote for.H.1711/S.1083:
“An Act prohibiting discrimination against adults with disabilities in Family and Juvenile Court proceedings”.

The US Departments of Justice and Health and Human Services entered into a settlement agreement with Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) to address disability discrimination.
