2013 MNCDHH Legislative Agenda

Published 02-06-2013

By working together over the past twelve years, Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Deafblind citizens and their allies have passed over 40 pieces of legislation.

This year is no different. We listened and received proposals from a diverse array of stakeholders. The 15 Members of our Commission has now unanimously voted for a 2013 Legislative Agenda which includes important Newborn Hearing Screening changes, increased funds for Parent Guides and Deaf Mentors, Deaf and Hard of Hearing Teacher Licensure continuing education requirements, specialized employment programs, technology accessibility, protecting the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services Division, and an increase in funds for MNCDHH.
