download (2)Jan 26, Sen. Charles Schumer, New York – was accompanied by Avonte Oquendo’s mother and grandmother to announce the proposed Avonte’s Law.

The proposed law would fund voluntary tracking devices for autistic children.

It also hopes to expand support services for families who have autistic children.

Sen. Schumer is reported on the CBS New York website as saying:

“Avonte’s Law will allow his memory to live on while helping to prevent more children with autism from going missing.”

He then added:

“The technology will allow parents of all children with autism, no matter how much or how little money they have, to enjoy the benefits of a high-tech solution to an age-old problem.”

Avonte’s mother and grandmother understandably declined speak to reporters.

Avonte went missing from his Queens school in October. His body was found earlier this month.
