Proposed Amendment to L.D. 765

On February 10th, 2012, Representative Paul Davis proposed a carefully crafted amendment to L.D. 765 at a work session held by the Legislature’s Committee on Labor, Commerce, Research and Economic Development.  The proposed amendment had been crafted by staff at the Department of Labor with input from the Department of Education In an effort to minimize the cost of the funding initiatives contained in L.D. 765 and to eliminate waiting lists of blind and severely visually impaired students needing specialized services from Teachers of the Visually Impaired and Orientation and Mobility Instructors.  The L.C.R.E.D. Committee worked with the proposed amendment making a few changes and voted unanimously that L.D. 765 as amended ought to pass.  The text of the amendment as Representative Davis proposed it is attached:
