BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Disabled advocates testified before a state assembly committee Wednesday to push for base funding for independent learning centers. A bill introduced by Rudy Salas (D-Bakersfield) if approved would allow funding for all 28 of those centers. Salas said 3 of the 28 ILCs, including Independent Living Center of Kern County, receive zero state funding despite providing the same services offered at other centers throughout the state.
“By no fault of their own, these three centers have been excluded from receiving state funding,” said Assemblymember Salas. “Equally funding our state’s Independent Living Centers will improve their ability to operate and have long-lasting positive impacts on the lives of those they serve.”
