(This amendment restores a 15% reduction or $1.3 million GF each year to the Long-term Employment Support Services (LTESS/EES) program. This employment program helps Virginians with severe disabilities obtain and maintain employment. The proposed reduction in the introduced budget would eliminate services to 692 individuals with disabilities that were receiving support to maintain their jobs. These funds are intended to be used solely for long-term support services.)
