Wis. seeks to preserve options amid mandate to reduce "sheltered workshops"

State officials must submit a report to the federal government as part of a mandate to increase community employment opportunities, but some advocates for individuals with disabilities are concerned about the closure of such workshops and an overall reduction in options.
