Once again today our Statewide Rehabilitation Council is meeting it gave accessable notice and made documents accessable to me in accordance with the ADA, Rehab Act, let alone Open Meetings Act. Yet BSBP is also meeting with its so-called commission today and no notice. No nothing (sorry for the duble nagative, but this scofflaw agency is a duble negative).

We federationists should be storming the gates.
