National Council on Disability Calls for New Federal Approach to Disability Policy
Date:3/31/2009

WASHINGTON, March 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Council on Disability (NCD) today released its annual report to the President and Congress calling for a new integrated approach to disability policy within the Federal Government.

In addition, we analyzed several national disability-related data sources and also drew from NCD's current research and the studies of other government agencies.
