Co-Sponsors: Ladd Stokan, Graham (24), Howerton, Hartzler
This bill authorizes the Missouri Assistive Technology Advisory
Council to establish a loan program for the purchase of
assistive technology devices and services. After July 1, 2001,
appropriations for the loan program and matching grant moneys
received by the state as specified by the federal Assistive
Technology Act of 1998 will be regulated and dispersed according
to the provisions of the bill.
The bill authorizes the establishment of the Assistive
Technology Loan Revolving Fund which will be administered by the
Missouri Assistive Technology Advisory Council and the State
Treasurer. The council can approve the receipt of federal,
state, public, and private moneys or loans to finance the fund.
The moneys and appropriations will be used to maintain the
assistive technology loan program and will not revert to the
General Revenue Fund at the end of the biennium.
