(This amendment increases state funding for the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) program by $6.7 million the second year from the general fund. The VR program assists individuals with disabilities get ready for, find, and keep jobs by providing training, placement, and job-coaching services along with workplace accommodations (i.e. assistive technology). As demand for services have exceeded available resources all categories were closed on November 1, 2014 and waiting lists for services are growing.)
