To: Charlie Martin Director O.R.S.

From: John Gordon Chairman I.C.B.V.

Subject: Meeting to be held on February 5, 2002 to discuss pending issues


Please accept this as tentative agenda for our upcoming meeting. I look forward to discussing the following issues.


1. Collection of Federal unassigned vending revenue

2. Inner governmental agreement between department of Mental Health and B.E.P.B.

3. Continued lack of legal assistance from D.H.S. in regards to Randolph Sheppard violations

4. B.E.P.B. budget / Contractual StaffMany of these issues are long over due in bringing them to some resolution.


My committee and myself met with the Secretary, Deputy Director, and Mr. Tom McMann. We were promised more legal support in regards to enforcement of the Randolph Sheppard Act. As far as the collection of Federal Vending monies, there had been some debate on whether the elected committee had the authority to take responsibility for the collection.


Mr. Drake has an opinion on this subject written by your own legal council and Mr. Robert Humphreys who was the co-author of the 1974 Amendments to the Randolph Sheppard Act.


If you have any questions, please contact me at 312-566-0752 .


Thank You
