Becchi releases bill of rights for individuals with disabilities

By Nikita Biryukov, September 14 2020 10:57 am

11th-district House candidate Rosemary Becchi released a bill of rights for residents with disabilities Thursday.

The seven-point plan calls for increased mobility for those with disabilities, employment with some accommodations, inclusive education and fewer barriers to health and wellness services, among other things.

“While Washington politicians focus on partisan bickering and putting politics ahead of New Jersey families, our most vulnerable citizens are being left behind during this pandemic, said Becchi. “In Congress, I will always fight for the most vulnerable. That’s why the first piece of legislation I will sponsor is a Bill of Rights for All Individuals with Disabilities.”

Becchi is running for Rep. Mikie Sherrill’s (D-Montclair) seat in Congress.
