Capitol Consultants just shared the attached press release with us. As reported in this morning’s Legislative Committee phone conference, RFW in Action has made a request to one of the Co-Chairs of the Joint Committee for Review of Administrative Rules and another member of the Assembly that the Prevocational Services Guidelines and the Six Month Progress Report be a part of this regulatory review. These Guidelines and Review can be found on the Department of Health Services’ website, here:
The statement from Speaker Vos, below, applies to the guidelines and reporting process 100%.
“These rules were created by bureaucrats without the input of the industries they impact: we are going to give those industries a voice again in state government and in turn free them to create jobs to benefit people across Wisconsin,” said Speaker Vos.
How much more time would you or your staff have to concentrate on the core mission of your organization, if you were able to reduce the time required to prepare a Six Month Progress Review for each of your clients? How much more effectively could you serve individuals needing services if you didn’t have to contend with Care Managers and IRIS Consultants trying to interpret the convoluted logic in the Pre-voc Guidelines, which even a well-educated lawyer like Bobby Silverstein, the author of the ADA, couldn’t figure out?
If you agree with our request for JCRAR to review these burdensome requirements, which DHS has made of CRPs operating pre-voc programs, please write a note supporting RFW in Action’s request and how the requirements affect you or your organization to http://righttherules.legis.wisconsin.gov.
If you have time and you are represented by any of the following legislators, you could also write a note supporting the request to one of them, as well:
