Making Healthcare More Accessible to Disabled is on MO Amputee State Rep’s Agenda

Missouri State Representative Rasheen Aldridge (D-St. Louis) has stated that he plans to forward legislation to make healthcare more accessible to people with disabilities, including helping seniors with disabilities to receive access to care in their homes. The legislation is especially personal to Aldridge, who, when he was young, underwent amputation of his right leg due a birth defect and wears a prosthetic leg. Earlier this year, another bill Aldridge had penned, designating April as limb loss awareness month, was attached to Senate Bill 72, which was signed by the Governor Mike Parsons (R) and takes effect August 28.
