House Bill 1256 Update

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.
