On May 15, 2018 former Governor Matt Bevin signed an Executive Order creating an Employment First Council and declaring that employment be the first and preferred service for those Kentuckians with disabilities who want to work. The signing came upon release of the Kentucky Work Matters report supporting increased employment for Kentuckians with disabilities. The President of Kentucky APSE was invited to be a member of the Work Matters Task Force which lead to the creation of this report!
