NY Assemblyman wants special autism ID’s for those affected

Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara has launched a campaign to issue uniform identification cards for those with autism.

He says its part of an effort to help law enforcement identify them during emergency situations.

“The card will help to easily and efficiently explain a person’s diagnosis and other critical information to avoid misunderstandings during an emergency,” said Santabarbara.

If the bill is passed the ID cards would be issued by the DMV and replace locally issued ID’s and homemade notes.
