November 9, 2017 - Introduced by Joint Legislative Audit Committee. Referred
to Committee on Workforce Development.
AB617,1,2 1An Act to repeal 47.03 (11); and to amend 16.84 (8) of the statutes; relating
the supervised business initiatives program.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Current law requires the Department of Workforce Development to run a
supervised business initiatives program and provide vocational training to
individuals with severe disabilities who are eligible for vocational rehabilitation
services. Under the program, DWD may own, lease, manage, supervise, or operate
businesses for the benefit of participants, with the goal of enabling persons with
severe disabilities to operate their own businesses. Current law also requires DWD
to promulgate rules to establish a formula for charging a portion of the expense of
the supervised business initiatives program to each business operating under the
program. This bill repeals the requirement for DWD to run the supervised business
initiatives program.
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
