Maine Independent Living Commission Formed by Maine Lawmakers

Maine Public Broadcasting Network reports on a new state Commission on Independent Living and Disability formed earlier this month:
Rep. Matt Peterson, a Rumford Democrat, sponsored the legislation creating the state Commission ... and he co-chairs the group.
"Technology, architecture, personal assistants - these are the major barriers and the ones we hope to tackle with some really specific initiatives," Peterson says.
