We must invest in the financial stability of Missourians with disabilities.
While the Missouri Achieving a Better Life Experience(ABLE) Act has passed in the state, it is an economic development tool for the already economically developed. The plan does not help individuals who are in poverty or low wage households and have a disability. As Treasurer, I will offer reforms and practices that help more individuals with disabilities take advantage of the 529(a) savings plan. People with disabilities have many other expenses and challenges to tackle; paying for school and other life saving medical procedures should not be one of them.
