Amend CSHB 2292 as follows:                                                  
	On page 161, Line 27 add subsection (b) to read as follows:                    
	b) It is the intent of the legislature that, whenever 
possible, and to the maximum extent feasible, the existing network 
of transportation providers, and in particular the fixed route 
components of the existing networks, be used to meet the client 
transportation requirements of the state's social service agencies 
and their agents.  The legislature recognizes the contributions of 
nonprofit entities dedicated to providing social services and 
related activities and encourages the continued community 
involvement of these entities in this area.  The legislature 
likewise recognizes the potential cost savings and other benefits 
for utilizing existing private sector transportation resources.  
The department will contract with and promote the use of private 
sector transportation resources to the maximum extent feasible 
consistent with the goals of this subsection.
