The editorial in the 7/16 Disability Policy Consortium Weekly Update focused on House Bill 52 "An Act to provide access to hearing aids for children".
Bill Allan highlights what supporters of the bill have done right so far which include 1) the focus is children; 2) there is an impressive amount of legislative support - 71 bipartisan "official" co-sponsors plus numerous others; 3) there was a diverse array of people who testified at the Hearing in May; and, finally 4) H.52 supporters are well-organized and focused.
Mr. Allan Also indirectly reminds us that the session is ending soon. PLEASE DO YOUR PART TO SEE THAT H.52 PASSES!! Be sure *your* legislators in both the House and Senate are well aware of your position and ask them to support House Bill 52!!
