Within 6 months after October 8, 2010, the Commission shall establish rules that define as eligible for relay service support those programs that are approved by the Commission for the distribution of specialized customer premises equipment designed to make telecommunications service, Internet access service, and advanced communications, including interexchange services and advanced telecommunications and information services, accessible by low-income individuals who are deaf-blind.
(b) Individuals who are deaf-blind defined
For purposes of this subsection, the term “individuals who are deaf-blind” has the same meaning given such term in the Helen Keller National Center Act, as amended by the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1992 (29 U.S.C. 1905(2)).
(c) Annual amount
The total amount of support the Commission may provide from its interstate relay fund for any fiscal year may not exceed $10,000,000.
 So in original. Probably should be “section,”.
The Helen Keller National Center Act, referred to in subsec. (b), is title II of Pub. L. 98–221, Feb. 22, 1984, 98 Stat. 32, which is classified principally to chapter 21 (§ 1901 et seq.) of Title 29, Labor. The term “individuals who are deaf-blind” is defined in section 206(2) of the Act, as amended by Pub. L. 102–569, which is classified to section
1905(2) of Title
29. For complete classification of this Act to the Code, see Short Title note set out under section
1901 of Title
29 and Tables.
2010—Subsec. (a). Pub. L. 111–265, § 2(5), inserted “low-income” after “accessible by”.
Pub. L. 111–265, § 2(4), made technical amendment to reference in original act which appears in text as reference to “October 8, 2010”.
The table below lists the classification updates, since Jan. 3, 2012, for this section. Updates to a broader range of sections may be found at the update page for containing chapter, title, etc.
