About the Committee
The COABA Public Policy Committee (PPC) works under the direction of the COABA Executive Board. The PPC facilitates actions with key Colorado state decision-makers including the state legislature and other governmental bodies, as well as other practitioner and parenting advocacy organizations to recommend policy, legislative, and regulatory solutions. The PPC also arranges trainings on issues relevant to our membership (e.g., billing codes and issues, legal issues).
Initiatives to date include the provision of ABA CPT Code Training by Jeanna Mitton, planning for an Autism Law Workshop by the Autism Law Resource Center (Dan Unumb and Tim Courtney), submitting and managing the Sunrise Application for licensure consideration, intimately supporting HB22-1260 on Medical Necessity in Schools, and general discussions on regulatory practices of behavior analysis in Colorado.
A huge shout out to these amazing Colorado #wavemakers that are creating meaningful change!
