ACA’s Director of Government Affairs, Art Terrazas, spoke with the Associated Press about a report stating that New Mexico ranks well below the national average in graduating students with disabilities with a regular high school diploma. Over the last few months, ACA has advocated for Governor Martinez of New Mexico to allocate unspent state funds to the Development Disabilities Waivers Program.
