From the National APSE (Association of Persons Supporting Employment First):

The Transformation to Competitive Integrated Employment Act (TCIEA, HR2373) was reintroduced by the House Committee on Education & Labor.

TCIEA will provide states and employers with resources to transition workers with disabilities into fully integrated and competitive jobs while phasing out the subminimum wage for individuals with disabilities.
