A sweeping reorganization and 19 months of work have eliminated a waiting list of disabled residents seeking jobs, with help from the state’s Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation, Gov. Chris Sununu announced Tuesday.

After a 2018 financial review, Education Commissioner Frank Edelblut determined the bureau had been spending millions more than it received in federal grants for six years.

The bureau was relying on built-up surpluses to pay the bills and faced a growing deficit unless corrective action was taken, Edelblut said.
