~~Policy review. Every agency under the Governor’s jurisdiction that has a direct or indirect impact   on   increasing   competitive-integrated   employment   outcomes   for   working-age Pennsylvanians with a disability in the public sector or private sector should issue an Employment First statement or  an  Employment  First  policy,  articulating  the  values  and principles consistent with Executive Order 2016-03. The agencies should conduct a review of all existing regulations and policies to identify provisions which are, or may be, in conflict with Executive Order 2016-03 and pursue the adoption of changes to ensure that regulations and policy align. “
