Legislative Education Project

The Governor´s Council on Disability sponsors the Legislative Education Project (LEP) during the legislative session.

The purpose of the LEP is to educate and motivate individuals by providing opportunities to become more active in creating positive public policies for people with disabilities.

The LEP is available for individuals/organizations that are a novice to the legislative process or need additional learning about the Missouri legislative process regarding disability policies or proposed legislation that impact people with disabilities.

These will be provided at no cost to participants. WebEx software will be used to conduct each webinar.
