GPS technology-focused holding company GTX Corp (OTC: GTXO) yesterday announced that its CEO, Patrick Bertagna, recently went to Capitol Hill to meet with Congress and discuss Kevin and Avonte’s Law, a piece of legislation passed in late March aimed at helping families locate missing loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease, autism and related conditions. Per the update, Bertagna, along with a contingent from the National Police Athletic League, met with Rep. Mike Doyle (D-PA), Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), Sen. Klobuchar (D-MN), Sen. Grassley (R-IA) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to discuss the recently passed law, which will authorize the appropriation of $2 million annually over the 2018–2022 period for DOJ to make grants to state and local governments and nonprofit organizations for programs to locate missing persons with dementia or developmental disabilities. “We have been following this bill since 2014 and are very pleased to see it passed into law and appropriated in the recently approved federal budget,” Bertagna stated in the news release. “We sincerely thank all the members of congress who worked tirelessly to help move this forward. This law speaks to the heart of our mission statement of providing wearable GPS tracking solutions and wander assistive technology for those prone to wandering due to Alzheimer’s or autism.”
