Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Blind Vendors Act. Requires that the Department of Human Services, Bureau of Blind Services, operate and promote the Business Enterprise Program for the Blind, with the federal Randolph-Sheppard Act and regulations serving as the minimum operating standards. Requires that: (1) blind vendors have priority in the operation of all vending facilities on State property; (2) vending machine income from all vending machines on State property shall be assigned to the blind vendor on the property or to the Blind Vendors Trust Fund; (3) no State agency may impose any commission, service charge, rent, or utility charge on a blind vendor operating on State property; (4) sales made at a blind vendor's vending facility are exempt from all occupation and use taxes; and (5) State agencies may not allow competition with a blind vendor. Exempts certain State property from the Act's application. Provides for the implementation, administration, and financing of the program and for the regulation and licensing of participating blind vendors. 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 Retailer's Occupation Tax Act to exempt from taxation (without sunset) personal property purchased from a blind vendor's vending facility licensed by the Department of Human Services under the Blind vendors Act.
