State officials say the actual number of physically-disabled Kansans legitimately in line for home and community-based Services is about 2,200.
Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback Tuesday signed into law a bill that will create jobs for Kansans with disabilities.
House Bill 2453 will give preference for state contracts to businesses that meet specific criteria, including employing at least 20 percent of full-time workers in Kansas with disabilities.
Companies must also do the majority of their business in Kansas and pay at least 75 percent of the total health insurance premium cost for their employees.
