INTRODUCED

HB 1763 -- Sheltered Workshops

Co-Sponsors:  Burton, Murray

This bill requires county sheltered workshop boards ("Senate
Bill 40 boards") to establish a planning process for assessing
the need for services for the developmentally disabled.  The
board will seek input from the community and anyone with an
interest in the disabled, considering the workshops, vocational
services, and residential services needs in the planning
process.  The results of the planning process must be presented
at public meetings.  The board must adopt a plan that meets the
needs of interested parties.  The Senate Bill 40 board must meet
with sheltered workshop boards to discuss issues of both
boards.  The Senate Bill 40 board is required to make an annual
report and review the plan every 3 years.  The Senate Bill 40
board must also adopt a plan appeals process.

The bill clarifies the related services a Senate Bill 40 board
may fund.  These services are commodities that are connected to
or associated with vocational training, vocational teaching,
vocational activities, vocational workshops, recreation, sports
competition, and respite or day habilitation.  Senate Bill 40
boards may also set rules for eligibility in the services they
fund.

The bill also prohibits the appointment of Senate Bill 40 board
members who have been employed by the board within 12 months or
who are currently serving on another board that receives Senate
Bill 40 funding.
