George W. Bush: Statement on Signing the Combating Autism Act of 2006
For the millions of Americans whose lives are affected by autism, today is a day of hope. The "Combating Autism Act of 2006" will increase public awareness about this disorder and provide enhanced Federal support for autism research and treatment. By creating a national education program for doctors and the public about autism, this legislation will help more people recognize the symptoms of autism. This will lead to early identification and intervention, which is critical for children with autism. I am proud to sign this bill into law and confident that it will serve as an important foundation for our Nation's efforts to find a cure for autism.NOTE: S. 843, approved December 19, was assigned Public Law No. 109-416. An original was not available for verification of the content of this statement.Citation: George W. Bush: "Statement on Signing the Combating Autism Act of 2006," December 19, 2006.
