01/02/2011  President Obama issued EO 13548 requiring Federal agencies to develop plans to hire 100,000 workers with disabilities by 2015.  "Targeted disabilities" (as defined in SF 256) include conditions that substantially limit one or more of major life activities including speech, vision, hearing, mental, or orthopedic impairments, missing extremities, partial or complete paralysis, learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities, and certain chronic conditions.
