The time is getting closer for launching special tax-free savings accounts for Michiganders with disabilities.

It's called MI-ABLE, the Achieving a Better Life Experience program. 

MI-ABLE was signed into law in Michigan late last year. Now, word has come that the state has firmed up a contract with a Florida-based company to manage this savings program.

David Bulkowski is the executive director of Disability Advocates of Kent County. He joined us today to talk about these new ABLE savings accounts and what they'll mean for people with disabilities. 

GUEST David Bulkowski is the executive director of Disability Advocates of Kent County and a Kent County commissioner.
