"Employment First" Bill for Disabled Mainers

A new "Employment First" bill crafted to help disabled Mainers land jobs got an enthusiastic reception today at a legislative hearing, and attracted dozens of supporters. Sponsored by Maine Senate President Justin Alfond, the bill directs state agencies to coordinate their efforts in making employment the first priority when disabled Mainers turn to the state for help.
