Town Hall Meetings
The Budget for 2009-2010 was signed by the Governor on July 28, 2009. Trailer Bill Language (TBL) AB9 became law. The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) was mandated by the Legislature to identify $384 million in savings reductions since February and all 21 regional centers have been notified by DDS of many proposed changes to the Welfare and Institutions Code (also known as the Lanterman Act). These changes will have a significant impact on many of our families and consumers as well as how SCLARC delivers the services upon which our stakeholders depend.
The Board of Directors, Leadership and staff of South Central Los Angeles Regional Center are committed to providing services as prescribed by the Lanterman Act. As stated, the regional center system has been directed by the Legislature to cut $384 million from its budget, and Trailer Bill Language AB9 drastically changes the provisions of the Lanterman Act.
