Governor Nixon to sign autism bill Thursday

(KMOV) – A statewide tour will celebrate the signing of a bill covering children with autism in Missouri.

Governor Jay Nixon will be in St. Louis and six other cities across the state on Thursday.

The legislation requires some insurance providers to cover an expensive behavioral therapy known as applied behavioral analysis.

Experts say it’s a vital tool for children with autism.
