I feel strongly that individuals with disabilities deserve the right to save for their futures just like every other American, and the ABLE Act does just that.
The ABLE Act could fund a variety of essential expenses for individuals like education, employment training, housing, health care and transportation.
It would also help individuals like my son be able to be independent and not have to be dependent on public benefits for everything.
In West Virginia, I want to thank Reps. Shelley Moore Capito, Nick Rahall, and David McKinley for co-sponsoring this very important legislation.
It is the right thing to do for all people with disabilities and their families in West Virginia.
I ask Sens. Joe Manchin and Jay Rockefeller to cosponsor the ABLE Act.
