"The National Council on Disability (NCD) – an independent federal agency that makes policy recommendations to the President, Congress and other federal agencies – welcomes its newest Member, Andrés J. Gallegos, who was appointed to NCD by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. Minority Leader Schumer announced the appointment on February 7, and Mr. Gallegos swore his oath of office and began work with NCD today.

"The Council extends a warm welcome to its newest Member. We look forward to putting Mr. Gallegos’s legal and healthcare expertise to work for our current NCD projects as well as for ongoing policy discussions happening on Capitol Hill," stated NCD Chair Clyde Terry. “I am also glad to have Mr. Gallegos’s experiences and perspectives as a veteran and as Board Chairman of Access Living of Metropolitan Chicago.”

With the incoming of Mr. Gallegos, NCD also sends its collective gratitude to outgoing NCD Council Member Bob Brown of Las Vegas, Nevada for his three years of service on behalf of the Council and his commitment to public service.

Appointments to NCD are made by the President of the United States, the Senate Majority Leader, the Senate Minority Leader, the Speaker of the House, and the House Minority Leader pursuant to Section 451 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (Pub. L. 113–128)."
