State Senator Julie Kushner joined the National Organization for Rare Disorders and Connecticut Rare Action Network Friday for Rare Disease Day at the Legislative Office Building.  Attending the event was Father Nick of Assumption Greek Orthodox Church in Danbury and his wife Meghan, with their young daughter who has a rare disease. Father Nick needed to use a handicap tag to drop off his daughter close to school, but the family's tag was on his wife's car.  After calling the DMV to obtain a second tag, he was prevented from receiving on due to a restriction in state law.  Kushner says Father Nick then initiated a piece of legislation she voted for that would allow families to obtain a handicap placard for a second vehicle.
