The co-chairs of the caucus know something about this.

Representative Al Gentry lost and arm in a workplace accident and Representative Brandon Reed has cerebral palsy.

“Today is a great day for Kentucky. We are laying the foundation for long term success in dealing with Kentuckians with disabilities,” said Rep. Al Gentry.

The general assembly is considering bills that deal with dyslexia education, insurance fairness for amputees, and tax credits for people making their homes more accessible.
