Senate HELP (Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions) committee
staff, Republican and Democrat, held a briefing today and
indicated that the Senate bill is still being drafted and will
not be introduced this week. As of now it looks like the bill
will be introduced after the recess, maybe Monday June 2, but
probably during that week. The bill will be formally introduced,
provided a number and will probably be posted on the website of
the Senate HELP committee *<http://www.senate.gov/~labor/>
before it is posted on Thomas.
Following the bill's introduction, there will be a two week
period during which committee staff will consider suggestions
from parents and advocates.
They still intend to finish the Committee work by the end of
Feedback from the community on the bill during that 2 week
period is encouraged. Meetings will be set up during the first
week after release but they prefer that any documents (written
comments etc. ) be sent via email. *You can find your
