Oklahoma Governor’s Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities

Oklahoma

“The Governor's Committee was established as an agency of state government with the passing of House Bill 996 on May 27, 1957, by the 26th Oklahoma Legislature. It made provisions for the Governor to appoint 75 citizens to serve on the Committee without compensation for terms of two, four and six years. All areas of the state are served by appointees who represent a multitude of backgrounds from both the profit and non-profit sectors, labor, business, industry, medicine, law, education, religion, veteran affairs, rehabilitation, civic affairs and the media. The expertise and concern of each of these respective members converge to serve the Committee's common purpose: to promote the rehabilitation and employment of workers with disabilities in the State of Oklahoma.”
