House Bill 1256 has passed both Illinois houses of Congress. It now goes to the governor and will be signed into law. Thanks to everyone who called or e-mailed their state representatives and urged them to support this important bill. This bill will allow people with disabilities to earn up to $25,000 a year and still be eligible for Medicaid. For many people with disabilities who have pain or low stamina, part-time employment may be a possibility when full-time employment is not.
