      Katz: Issue Parking Permits to Parents of Autistic Kids


      Transport Minister Yisrael Katz has ordered offices under his jurisdiction to continue to issue handicapped parking passes to parents of autistic children. The government had decided last week to stop issuing the passes.

      Katz said he authorized the continued issuing of the passes after he discovered that the vast majority of requests made in recent months had been denied by the medical board that is in charge of issuing the passes. Katza added that the issuing of the passes was very important to the families of autistic children, as it made it much easier for them to ensure their mobility.
