Congress Recognizes National Rehabilitation Counselors Appreciation Day

The Senate passed S. Resolution 447 last week, which recognizes March 22, 2018, as National Rehabilitation Counselors Appreciation Day. The legislation commends rehabilitation counselors “for their dedication and hard work in providing counseling to individuals with disabilities.” The resolution is sponsored by Senators Bob Casey (D-PA) and Johnny Isakson (R-GA).

Although the resolution is not a major policy change, it does reflect that the Senate recognizes the importance of rehabilitation counselors and the counseling profession more broadly.
