reference to public agency was deleted from new §303.302(c)

(1)(ii) (proposed §303.301(c)(2)(ii)), concerning the

requirement that the State make use of each EIS provider in implementing child find in an effective manner. Another commenter disagreed with the language in proposed

§303.301(c)(2)(ii) because public agencies that provide

services to young children are critical to the child find system and these public agencies should be expressly referenced and continue to be an active part of the child find system. Both commenters recommended that current

§303.321(c)(2)(ii) be retained.

Discussion: Current §303.321(c)(2)(ii), regarding

coordination efforts, provides that the lead agency make use of the resources available through each public agency in the State to implement child find in an effective

manner. We added in new §303.302(c)(2)(ii) (proposed

§303.301(c)(2)(ii)) a reference to EIS providers because of

the revised definitions of EIS providers and public agencies. We agree with the commenters that the reference to public agencies should be reinstated and also have added that reference.

Changes: We have added the words “each public agency” to

the reference to “EIS provider in the State” to new

§303.302(c)(2)(ii) (proposed §303.301(c)(2)(ii)).
