        paint.  The analytical testing data collected on each residence 
        for purposes of primary prevention under section 144.9503 must 
        be shared with the swab team workers in order to provide 
        constructive feedback on their work and to the commissioner for 
        the purposes set forth in paragraph (c). 
           (c) The commissioner of health must establish a program in 
        cooperation with the commissioner to collect appropriate data as 
        required under paragraphs (a) and (b), in order to conduct an 
        ongoing evaluation of swab team services for primary and 
        secondary prevention.  Within the limits of available 
        appropriations, the commissioner of health must conduct or 
        contract with the commissioner, on up to 1,000 residences which 
        have received primary or secondary prevention swab team 
        services, a postremediation evaluation, on at least a quarterly 
        basis for a period of at least two years for each residence.  
        The evaluation must note the condition of the paint within the 
        residence, the extent of bare soil on the grounds, and collect 
        and analyze one noncarpeted floor dust lead sample.  The data 
        collected must be evaluated to determine the efficacy of 
        providing swab team services as a method of reducing lead 
        exposure in young children.  In evaluating this data, the 
        commissioner of health must consider city size, community 
        location, historic traffic flow, soil lead level of the property 
        by area or census tract, distance to industrial point sources 
        that emit lead, season of the year, age of the housing, age and 
        number of children living at the residence, the presence of pets 
        that move in and out of the residence, and other relevant 
        factors as the commissioner of health may determine.  This 
        evaluation of the swab team program may be paid from amounts 
        appropriated to the Department of Economic Security for 
        providing swab team services.

        shall determine areas at high risk for toxic lead exposure 
        before doing primary prevention lead hazard reduction 
        activities.  The program shall provide primary prevention lead 
        education materials, promote primary prevention swab team 
        services in cooperation with the commissioner of economic 
        security or housing finance, provide lead cleanup equipment and

        endorsement.  The rules must provide that an applicant for a 
        school bus endorsement or renewal is exempt from the physical

        examinations for school bus drivers conducted by medical 
        examiners authorized as provided by Code of Federal Regulations, 
        title 49, chapter 3, part 391, subpart E. 
           (b) The commissioner of public safety, in conjunction with 
        the commissioner of economic security education, shall adopt 
        rules prescribing a training program for Head Start bus 
        drivers.  The program must provide for initial classroom and

        program must provide training in defensive driving, human 
        relations, emergency and accident procedures, vehicle 
        maintenance, traffic laws, and use of safety equipment.  The

        produce other than as field labor, shall provide at its expense 
        health care insurance during the period of employment or for 
        illness or injury incurred while employed.  Such health care 
        insurance shall be in accordance with such rules as the 
        commissioner of economic security labor and industry may

        chapter 535, section 5, is continued as provided in this 
        subdivision and shall be known as the revolving fund for 
        vocational rehabilitation of the blind.  It shall be used for

        operating of vending stands by blind persons.  All income,

        thereof shall also be paid into the fund.  All interest earned 
        on money accrued in the fund must be credited to the fund by the

        available in the revolving fund that originated as operational 
        charges to individuals licensed under this subdivision for the 
        establishment, operation, and supervision of vending stands by 
        blind persons for the following purposes:  (1) purchase, upkeep 
        and replacement of equipment; (2) expenses incidental to the 
        setting up of new stands and improvement of old stands; (3) 
        reimbursement under section 15.059 to individual blind vending 
        operators for reasonable expenses incurred in attending 
        supervisory meetings as called by the commissioner and other 
        expenditures for management services consistent with federal 
        law; and (4) purchase of fringe benefits for blind vending 
        operators and their employees such as group health insurance, 
        retirement program, vacation or sick leave assistance provided 
        that the purchase of any fringe benefit is approved by a 
        majority vote of blind vending operators licensed pursuant to

        vending operator information on all matters relevant to the 
        fringe benefits.  "Majority vote" means a majority of blind 
        vending operators voting.  Fringe benefits shall be paid only

        is not assignable to an individual stand. 
           Money originally deposited as merchandise and supplies 
        repayments by individuals licensed under this subdivision may be 
        expended for initial and replacement stocks of supplies and 
        merchandise.  Money originally deposited from vending income on 
        federal property must be spent consistent with federal law. 
           All other deposits may be used for the purchase of general 
        liability insurance or any other expense related to the 
        operation and supervision of vending stands. 
           The commissioner shall issue each license for the operation 
        of a vending stand or vending machine for an indefinite period 
        but may terminate any license in the manner provided.  In 
        granting licenses for new or vacated stands preference on the 
        basis of seniority of experience in operating stands under the 
        control of the commissioner shall be given to capable operators 
        who are deemed competent to handle the enterprise under 
        consideration.  Application of this preference shall not 
        prohibit the commissioner from selecting an operator from the 
        community in which the stand is located.
