The discussion will include an update on ISS, as well as on HB 4169 (88th session related to including pre-vocational services as a part of ISS) and SB 50 (87th session related to competitive and integrated employment). The discussion regarding SB 50 will focus on the employment-first assessment tool.
HHSC is hoping for the adoption of the rules by November 2023 at which time the assessment tool will be mandatory.
