In Mass. we are working on the placement of the SILC out of the Governor's
office, and if that is not possible, out of the Secretary of Health and 
Human Services office. Claerly, the law call for an independent IL 
council, with the state agency providing funding and support. Most state 
agencies(VR), have not shown support for a independent council, because 
this would mean a lack of control, however, if the councils are to do the 
work outlined in the Rehab Act, it must have the ability to be 
independent.
