  1. Joan Millman: Former assemblywoman authored 58 lawsRead the original story w/Photo

"I believe we judge a society by how we treat our kids, our old people, and our people with disabilities," says Millman, who authored the bill holding out-of-state facilities serving New York's developmentally disabled children accountable.
