Summary of Original Version Create a new section of KRS Chapter 446 to provide that the Kentucky Revised Statutes shall no longer utilize the terms "mental retardation" or "mentally retarded" or abbreviations that use the letters "MR" to signify mental retardation or mentally retarded; set forth terms that shall be used instead, including "intellectual disability," "intellectual disabilities," "individual with an intellectual disability," "individuals with an intellectual disability," "individual with a serious intellectual disability," or "individuals with a serious intellectual disability"; clarify that the new terms shall be understood to have the exact meaning as the terms that they replace; change the names of ICF/MRs to ICF/IDs to the extent permitted by federal law; amend various sections of the Kentucky Revised Statutes to replace all occurrences of the old terms in statutes with the new terms, including the names of agencies, boards, care facilities, services, programs, professionals, diagnoses, the title of a chapter, and the names of nongovernmental entities that have incorporated the new terminology.
