The House of Representatives passed the Omnibus Appropriations Bill 
last evening.  We "hear" that the SE State Grant Program and other 
disability employment programs were funded.  We have not yet been 
able to confirm the rumor but believe it to be solid.

Thanks to all who rallied around this issue!  We do not believe there 
is need for further action, but if that changes, we will send out 
another alert.
