Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Blind Vendors Act. Provides that the Department of Human Services, Bureau of Blind Services, shall operate and promote the Business Enterprise Program for the Blind.

Sets forth that the Bureau Director for the Bureau of the Blind and the Committee of Blind Vendors shall jointly develop regulations to ensure that priority is given to blind vendors in the operation of vending facilities on State property. Provides that the Department may provide for set-asides of the net proceeds of vending operations under certain conditions. Requires set-aside funds to be deposited in the Blind Vendors Trust Fund, a separate account managed by the Department for the State's blind vendors. Sets forth provisions for the distribution of vending machine income from vending machines on State property. Provides certain conditions for the licensing of blind vendors. Creates the Committee of Blind Vendors to jointly participate in the development and implementation of all policies, plans, and major decisions affecting the Business Enterprise Program for the Blind.

Provides for the promulgation of regulations relating to the operation of this Act. Requires the Department to make regular surveys and reports on State property and vending facilities. Sets forth conditions and information to be contained in the surveys and reports. Preempts home rule powers. Repeals the Blind Persons Operating Vending Facilities Act. Amends the Use Tax Act, Service Use Tax Act, Service Occupation Tax Act, and Retailers' Occupation Tax Act to provide that personal property purchased from a blind vendor's vending facility licensed by the Department of Human Services under the Blind Vendors Act is exempt from the taxes imposed by those Acts and that these exemptions are not subject to the sunset provisions of those Acts.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1

Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 6
Provides that with respect to written contracts between certain divisions of the Department of Human Services and a private vendor, bottler, or vending machine supplier the Business Enterprise Program for the Blind has the right to provide the services at those facilities upon completion of the existing contract or upon material breach of that contract if the Program matches or exceeds the existing financial terms of the completed or breached contract.

Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the engrossed bill with the following changes. Makes changes to certain definitions in the Act. Provides that the purpose of the Business Enterprise Program for the Blind is to provide the same priority to licensed blind vendors on State property as federally required under the Randolph-Sheppard Act by requiring State agencies to give priority to licensed blind vendors in the operation of vending facilities on State property and preference to licensed blind vendors in the operation of cafeteria facilities on State property, unless the cafeteria operations are operated by employees of a State agency. Requires this Program to provide that tie bid preference is given to blind vendors in the operation of cafeterias on State property. Deletes provisions prohibiting competition with a blind vendor, requiring the Department to take all feasible steps to encourage vending by blind vendors, and exempting the State Fairgrounds, any Department of Natural Resources subcontracts, and the World Shooting and Recreation Complex from complying with the requirements of the Act.

Provides that upon receiving a request for this satisfactory site determination, the Director or his or her designee and the Committee shall have 10 days in which to notify the State agency as to whether the new property or building is satisfactory or not satisfactory for the operation of a blind vendor vending facility. Sets forth additional conditions for this determination and conditions applicable upon the making of this determination.
