National Federation of the Blind Rejects Nelson-Collins Amendment
Date:2/6/2009

Urges Senate to Retain Rehabilitation Funding

BALTIMORE, Feb. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dr. Marc Maurer, President of the National Federation of the Blind, the oldest and largest organization of blind people in the United States, said: "The purpose of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, currently being debated in the United States Senate, is to reduce unemployment and to restore economic security for all Americans. In order to accomplish this goal for Americans who are blind or have other disabilities, state vocational rehabilitation programs must be adequately funded. The National Federation of the Blind urges all members of the United States Senate to reject the Nelson-Collins Amendment and retain the $500 million currently allocated for vocational rehabilitation. By doing so, the Senate will ensure that all Americans have the training needed to work and contribute to this nation's economic prosperity."
