(This amendment provides $128,000 the first year and $192,000 the second year from the general fund to the Long Term Employment Support Services (LTESS) program to restore reductions contained in the introduced budget for this program. Combined with reductions made in Chapter 874 of the 2010 Virginia Acts of Assembly, these reductions represent a cumulative loss in funding of 21 percent and the loss of 500 jobs for people with disabilities. This program provides critical employment support services for working Virginians with disabilities who are served through community-based Employment Service Organizations.)
