Legislation on services for persons with disabilities 

The current Act on Services and Assistance for the Disabled and the Act on Special Care for the Mentally Handicapped will be consolidated into one act on special services for persons with disabilities that would apply to all persons with disabilities equally. 

The Government submitted a proposal on the matter to Parliament on 27 September 2018.
