The American Physical Therapy Association supports H.R. 764/S. 72, the Keep Our Promise to America’s Children and Teachers Act, or PACT Act. H.R. 764 was introduced in the House of Representatives by Susie Lee, D-N.V.; and S. 72 was introduced in the Senate by Chris Van Hollen, D-Md.
The PACT Act would put Congress on a path to meet its obligation to fully fund the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, known as IDEA, ensuring that special education and related services for children with disabilities is a priority in the federal budget.
