House Bill no. 136, filed in January 2013, is a petition to increase the Commonwealth of Massachusett's compliance with federal law meeting requirements of the Amercians with DisAbilities Act. This written testimony explains that the US Dept. of Labor Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs announced a Final Rule on August 27, 2013, which made changes to the regs implementing Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Most important is the establishment of the 7 percent workforce utilization goal for individuals with disabilities (IWD). Massachusetts has an important opportunity at this time to develop into a Model Employer of Individuals with DisAbilities!
