Federal Legislation for Choice is Here and Your Voice Matters!

Posted on : 01 Jun 2018 | No Comments

Congressman Glenn Grothman (R-WI-06) recently introduced the Workplace Choice and Flexibility for Individuals with Disabilities Act (H.R. 5658). This bill will restore common sense to the definition of competitive integrated employment and provide increased employment opportunities for people with disabilities. People with disabilities across the country have been denied placements in high-paying jobs because of the regulations that implement the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). ACCSES supports expanding opportunities and keeping a full array of options available. They were honored to work with Congressman Grothman and his staff to help draft this legislation. It is now important for us to help advocate for this bill.
