Embattled Governor Blagojevich Signs Autism Bill Into Law

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich has a lot of troubles to deal with at the moment, having been arrested on corruption charges, his chief of staff resigning, the Illinois Attorney General asking the Illinois Supreme Court to remove him from office and President-elect Barack Obama and Democratic Senators and other politicians demanding he step down from office. The Governor is staying put, for now.

Today, as reported on Fox News, Governor Blagojevich signed into law the autism bill requiring that insurers cover autism treatment stating:

"Families of children with autism have a right to access the treatment their children need and today that has finally become a reality in Illinois," Blagojevich said in a statement.

"I have continued to fight for this cause and I am pleased to sign this bill into law today," he added.

Whatever happens to the Governor, whatever he has done, or not done, he has acted to better the lives of autistic children and their families in Illinois today and in his continued efforts to secure the passage of this autism legislation.

Well done Governor Blagojevich.
