Operating Budget Analysis
Program Description

    The Office of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing was created by legislation enacted through Chapter 537,
Acts of 2001 (House Bill 1187). The office is an Executive Department agency within the Office of the
Governor. The office is responsible for promoting the general welfare of the deaf and hard of hearing
individuals in the State and is required to hold two town meetings each year to receive comments on the
quality of State services and programs of the office.

   There is a 16-member Advisory Council for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.


Adjustments to Current Budget

   There are none because fiscal 2003 is the first budget for the agency.


Governor’s Proposed Budget

    The Governor's Allowance for the agency is $211,104 which is somewhat less than the total
anticipated in the fiscal note. The fiscal note envisioned an increase of $182,627 in State expenditures
and the transfer of an existing individual ($60,938) in the Office of Individuals with Disabilities (OID)
currently dedicated solely to deaf and hard of hearing issues. Much of the difference between this
$211,104 budget and the fiscal note ($243,565) can be explained by placement of the salaries of the three
positions at the base entry level. The Governor's Office and OID indicate the individual will be
transferred to the new office, but the position will be retained in OID. The Department of Legislative
Services recommends that the position be deleted from the OID budget DA.02.

Performance Analysis: Managing for Results

    This is a new agency, thus there is no history. The responsibilities of the office would include the
following services for deaf and hard of hearing individuals: (1) providing, advocating, and coordinating
the adoption of public policies, regulations, and programs; (2) improving access to communication and
to existing services and programs; (3) providing direct services as appropriate; (4) increasing public
awareness of the needs and issues affecting deaf and hard of hearing individuals; (5) working with State
and local agencies to ensure access to safety and emergency services, including the acquisition and
distribution of visual smoke detectors; (6) developing a referral service; (7) serving as an information
clearinghouse on the needs and issues affecting deaf and hard of hearing individuals; (8) working to
increase access to educational, health, and social opportunities; (9) working with private organizations,
the federal government, and other units of State government to promote economic development; (10)
working to eliminate underemployment and unemployment; (11) providing a network through which
services provided by State and federal programs can be channeled; and (12) promoting compliance with
State, local, and federal laws and policies protecting and serving deaf and hard of hearing individuals.
It is recommended that the agency develop MFR materials as part of its fiscal 2004 budget
submission. This should include performance measurement outcomes.
