EXECUTIVE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET WASHINGTON, D.C. 20503
STATEMENT OF ADMINISTRATION POLICY (THIS STATEMENT HAS BEEN COORDINATED BY OMB WITH THE CONCERNED AGENCIES.)
September 18, 1998
S. 2432 - Assistive Technology Act of 1998
(Jeffords (R) VT and 15 others)
The Administration supports Senate passage of S. 2432, which would
authorize grants to States designed to improve access to assistive
technology for people with disabilities. As we move into the 21st
Century, it is important that Federal and State policies promote the design
of products and environments that are readily useable by all Americans,
including individuals with disabilities.
S. 2432 would affect direct spending; therefore, it is subject to the
pay-as-you-go requirement of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990.
OMB estimates that the net pay-as-you-go effect would be zero.
