FINDINGS

20 USC 107 Hote. SEC. 201. The Congress finds— (1) after review of the operation of the blind vending stand program authorized under the Randolph-Sheppard Act of June 20, 1936, that the program has not developed, and has not 20 USC 107, been sustained, in the manner and spirit in which the Congress intended at the time of its enactment, and that, in fact, the growth of the program has been inhibited by a number of external forces; (2) that the potential exists for doubling the number of blind operators on Federal and other property under the RandolphSheppard program within the next five years, provided the obstacles to growth are removed, that legislative and administrative means exist to remove such obstacles, and that Congress should adopt legislation to that end; and (3) that at a minimum the following actions must be taken to insure the continued vitality and expansion of the RandolphSheppard program— (A) establish uniformity of treatment of blind vendors by all Federal departments, agencies, and instrumentalities, (B) establish guidelines for the operation of the program by State licensing agencies, (C) require coordination among the several entities with responsibility for the program, (D) establish a priority for vending facilities operated by blind vendors on Federal property, (E) establish administrative and judicial procedures under which fair treatment of blind vendors, State licensing agencies, and the Federal Government is assured, (F) require stronger administration and oversight functions in the Federal office carrying out the program, and (G) accomplish other legislative and administrative objectives which will permit the Randolph-Sheppard program to flourish.
