(This amendment restores funding to the Long-term Employment Support Services (LTESS) program, an employment program that helps people with severe disabilities obtain and maintain jobs. The program was reduced by three percent as part of the October 2007 budget reductions. The reduction in funding represents an actual elimination of services to approximately 100 individuals currently receiving support to maintain their jobs. LTESS is provided by 77 private providers across Virginia.)
