Thompson, Tommy G.
“The New Freedom Initiative was one of the earliest actions announced by the President in his first days in office. The President and I are committed to changing policies that unnecessarily confine people with disabilities in institutional settings. We want to work with the states and the disability community to change old programs and develop new ones that will serve people with disabilities in the settings that work best for them.”
Secretary Tommy G. Thompson
