    I am writing to express our family’s deep concern over this issue.
    We ask the leadership to please allow our Indiana residents FULL choice in housing. To legislate what constitutes the ‘right’ living environment to any person is very troubling to me and is not what the original law had in mind. It was to protect the individual with disabilities, not control their choices. We can certainly have policies in place to Protect without the constraints of control. It’s all in the language. So we urge you to please carefully choose language when creating current and future policies so that all our Hoosier residents can choose what kind of living environment is best for them. Developmental disabilities have a way of diminishing many options for individuals who live with them. Let’s not take away their fundamental right to choose WHERE to live.
    Thank you’
