DOVER, DE -- Delaware lawmakers have introduced a bill in the state Legislature that would broaden economic opportunities for blind residents in the state by creating snack bars, cafeterias and vending facilities on federal, state and municipal properties.

Under federal law and state law, Delaware's Business Enterprise Program is granted priority to operate vending facilities on federal and state property. The proposed legislation -- HB 139 -- would amend these rules to allow licensed participants in Delaware's BEP to purchase materials and nonprofessional services under any central contract negotiated by the state.
