Oppose the AHCA for public health AND education in Utah

There are a lot of reasons to call your Representative today asking they vote NO on the AHCA. But education is also being impacted, specifically for disabled students.
This NY Times piece breaks down how the AHCA would prevent Medicaid reimbursements common among special education students.
How doest this figure into Utah education? Rural Utahns are most likely to suffer under this policy. Given that rural Utah perspectives get a lot of lip service from our Congressional Representatives they should know that disabled students in rural Utah are already likely to struggle with access to care and make up the bulk of students impacted by this aspect of the AHCA (Deseret News).
