   15  more than 35 percent of such business enterprises may be owned
   16  by any one of the minority persons specified in s. 288.703 or by
   17  a veteran business enterprise, respectively.
   18         1. This paragraph does not preclude a minority person or
   19  veteran business enterprise from competing for any MMTC
   20  registration or any other procurement of goods or services
   21  awarded by the department.
   22         2. MMTCs have 12 months after the date of their
   23  registration to demonstrate to the department compliance with
   24  the minority business enterprise participation goal established
   25  in this paragraph.
   26         (k) Implement training programs and other educational
   27  programs to enable minority persons and veteran business
   28  enterprises to effectively compete for MMTC registration and
   29  contracts.

   41         programs and other educational programs for minority

   43         them to effectively compete for medical marijuana
   44         treatment center registration and contracts;
