The Plan serves several purposes within the state. First, the Plan provides the comprehensive working plan called for as a response to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Olmstead v. L.C, 119 S.Ct. 2176 (1999). Additionally, the Plan assists with the implementation efforts of the community-based alternatives Executive Order, RP-13, from Governor Rick Perry.3 The revised Plan also meets the requirements of the report referenced in S.B. 367, 77th Legislature, Regular Session, 2001, which directs the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) to report the status of the implementation of a plan to ensure appropriate care settings for individuals with disabilities, and the provision of a system of services and supports that foster independence and productivity, including meaningful opportunities for an individual with a disability to live in the most appropriate care setting.4 Finally, the Plan serves as an analysis of the availability, application, and efficacy of existing community-based supports for individuals with disabilities.
