Georgia HR 642: House Study Committee on Postsecondary Education and Employment for Individuals with IDD
Enacted in 2015, this legislation created a committee which conducted a study into PSE and employment needs for individuals with IDD from September to November 2015. It recommended that the Georgia legislature create an Employment First Georgia Council under the Georgia VR Agency.
The Council outlined in the bill was tasked with creating a comprehensive plan that would clarify gaps in providing education and employment supports to individuals with IDD. Its members were to include officials from Employment First Georgia, the state Department of Education, the DD Council, and the University System of Georgia, among others. The Council would also include service providers and disability advocates.
