in this Notice at least two weeks before the scheduled meeting date.

we may not be able to make available the requested auxiliary aid or

    On December 3, 2004, the Individuals with Disabilities Education 
Improvement Act of 2004 was enacted into law as Pub L. 108-446. Copies 
of the new law may be obtained at the following Web site:

    Enactment of the new law provides an opportunity to consider 
improvements in the regulations implementing Part C of the IDEA that 
would strengthen the Federal effort to increase flexibility for, and to 
require accountability of, States in their provision of early 
intervention services to infants and toddlers with disabilities and 
their families. The Part C NPRM was published May 9, 2007 in the 
Federal Register.
