The following information is provided to assist the user in navigating the outline of the 2006 Amendments. The outline consists of:

                    

•  An outline summary of the Amendment revisions to the Act;

•  Statutory text for each revision (new/revised language only);

•  Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) coming soon;

•  Technical Assistance (TA)/resource links; and

•  An unofficial compilation of the OAA, as amended in 2006.
