Bob Baldo heads up a statewide coalition of those facilities…called the Association of Regional Center Agencies, in Sacramento.
He says facility operators are bracing for the IOUs by asking banks for lines-of-credit.
“Most of them we think are going to be successful. So even though regional centers would be getting IOUs they would be able to continue to operate assuming these lines of credits are available and can draw on them at least for a short period of time.”
…about 30-days he estimates. Baldo says if the centers shut down, it’ll have a major impact on the lives of more than 240,000 Californians with developmental disabilities.
