Developmental Disability Activists Surround Capitol

Activists for developmentally disabled Californians gathered en masse at the state capitol to call for more funding for services. They want lawmakers to pass a 10% cent hike in funding for services that have stagnated for decades and weathered a 10% per cent cut over the last decade. Lawmakers had approved a partial funding restoration in the last budget, but the issue was later punted into a special legislative session that’s meeting through next week. Christopher Martinez reports from Sacramento.
