This bill, excluding the title and effective date, has two sections.
The first shuts down the Judge Rotenberg Educational Center, a facility for neurodivergent beings and those with developmental disabilities which has been condemned by the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture for utilizing 'torture' as punishment and treatment, prohibits the kinds of barbaric treatments used there and at other similar facilities, and creates a commission to investigate these treatments.
The second prohibits research into 'curing' neurodivergence, which is broadly opposed by most scientists and researchers specializing in brain development and health as unhelpful at best and eugenicist at worst, yet still promoted by... certain nonprofits headquartered in Lincoln, and therapies meant to change neurodivergent beings' behavior to be more 'normal' without their consent, such as trying to 'fix' touch-averse neurodivergent beings into liking physical affection. This protects the right of our neurodivergent residents to be themselves, instead of being 'fixed' for the benefit of 'society' at-large.
