Please Join the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR), Office of Superintendent and Public Instruction (OSPI), and Developmental Disability Administration (DDA) as they share with us their vision for the following 2022 Legislation affecting employment and community inclusion services:
HB1980-https://app.leg.wa.gov/billsummary?BillNumber=1980&Year=2021&Initiative=false
SSB 5790- https://app.leg.wa.gov/billsummary?BillNumber=5790&Initiative=false&Year=2021
HB2008- https://app.leg.wa.gov/billsummary?BillNumber=2008&Initiative=false&Year=2021
SB5268- https://app.leg.wa.gov/billsummary?BillNumber=5268&Year=2021&Initiative=false
SB5693-https://app.leg.wa.gov/billsummary?BillNumber=5693&Initiative=false&Year=2021

At this Townhall, DVR, OSPI, and DDA will help us understand their:
• timeline for implementing legislation,
• plans for engaging the disability community and providers
• plans for collaborating with the other state agencies and counties for implementation
• challenges and opportunities of this new legislation
• vision of system impacts and services for people with IDD, including high acuity labeled people

Our hope is that all participants will leave with a clearer picture of what lays ahead in challenges and opportunities to improve employment and community inclusion outcomes for people with IDD based on this legislation and what role each of us can play.
