(This amendment provides $80,460 the first year and $5.0 million the second year from the general fund to re-open funding for the most significantly disabled (MSD) on the waiting list for vocational rehabilitation (VR) services. Since July 2004, the VR program has been under an "order of selection", which is required when there is insufficient funding to serve all eligible individuals seeking services. Individuals are placed in one of four categories ranging from the least to most disabled with priority given to the most significantly disabled. Funding will allow for the MSD category to re-open services.)
