When any vending stand or other business enterprise operated in a public building
becomes vacant or a vacancy is created through the construction or acquisition of
new public buildings or renovation or expansion of existing public buildings, the
existence of such vacancies shall be made known to the Department. The Department acting on behalf of the blind shall have first priority in assuming
the operation of such vending stand or business enterprise through placement of a
properly trained blind person in such vacancy. This section shall not apply to vending stands or other business enterprises operated
in (i) local government buildings, (ii) the State Capitol, or (iii) the legislative
office buildings that shall be subject to the control of the Rules Committee of the
House of Delegates and the Rules Committee of the Senate. Notwithstanding the provisions of this section, any locality may, by ordinance or
resolution, provide for the Department to have first priority in assuming the operation
of any vending stand or business enterprise located in a local government building.
