One of the important functions that The Texas Governor’s Committee on People with Disabilities is charged to do in its enabling law is to make recommendations to the Governor and legislature each biennium on issues related to Texans with disabilities.
The Committee structures its work into ten broad issue areas. They are Access, Communication, Education, Emergency Management, Health, Housing, Recreation and the Arts, Transportation, Veterans and Workforce.
The Committee wants to hear from its citizens with disabilities, family members, caregivers and professionals in the field of disability issues. We want to know what YOU think are the major needs and issues facing Texans with disabilities. Your feedback is needed and welcomed.
If you have any data that you want to include with your comments that helps bolster your feedback, please do include it or a link to it with your survey comments. The survey will be posted until September 30, 2010. The information will then be consolidated and considered as the Committee drafts its biennial policy recommendations for the 82nd Legislative Session which begins in January 2011.
This survey is anonymous. Please distribute widely to your community. Thank you for your participation in this important survey. YOUR OPINION Matters!
