LEGISLATIVE ADVOCACY

Throughout Ohio, public and private vocational rehabilitation programs depend on state and federal tax dollars to provide programming and services to Ohioans with disabilities. Additionally, these VR programs assist people with disabilities to remove barriers to employment. They contribute to the state in the form of taxes instead of relying on the state for assistance. Once employed, these individuals need less public assistance. For every dollar Ohio budgets for vocational rehabilitation, four dollars on the federal level is matched. It is a very cost-effective program and enhances the lives of people with disabilities.

Due to the ever-changing political climate, education and advocacy are paramount to enlist the support of our elected public officials regarding the needs of Ohioans with disabilities. Budget issues are a constant concern and we need to be alert to legislation that will impact the funding for people with disabilities. The Governmental Affairs Committee disseminates legislative alerts via the “Ohio Wire” and “ORA Eblast” for any pertinent legislation or issues that members need to address with their state senators and representatives. The NRA “Legislative Alerts” assist us as well on the federal level to contact our Senators and State Representatives. The Committee provides the necessary tools to promote education and advocacy for people with disabilities.
