Last week, Congressman Glenn Grothman (R-WI-06) questioned Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos regarding the Department’s response to Obama-era rules and guidance relating to Competitive Integrated Employment (CIE) during a hearing in the House Committee on Education and the Workforce. You can watch Rep. Grothman’s line of questioning here, and you can read the Congressman’s press release here.
Tell your Representative in Congress to cosponsor HR 5658, The Workplace Choice and Flexibility for Individuals with Disabilities Act. 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.
