proposed §303.601(a)(1)(iii), parents who are employees of

a public or private agency involved in providing early intervention services could serve as parent members of the Council in accordance with the requirements that at least 20 percent of the Council be comprised of parent members of children with disabilities aged 12 or younger and at least one parent member be the parent of an infant or toddler with a disability or a child with a disability aged six years or younger. Finally, like all Council members,

pursuant to §303.601(d), a parent member of the Council who

which stated that a parent member on the Council may not be an employee of a public or private agency involved in providing early intervention services.
