Deaf-Blind Families For The Cogswell-Macy Act

VIDEO [CC] - Deaf News: Deaf-Blind families for the Cogswell-Macy Act (H.R. 3535) in the United States.


WASHINGTON -- On September 17, 2015, a comprehensive BILL to reform the education of Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Blind or Visually Impaired, and Deaf-Blind students was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The bill was sponsored by Congressman Matt Cartwright (D- PA 17th), with original co-sponsors David McKinley (R-WV 1st), Mark Takano (D-CA 41st), Tony Cardenas (D-CA 29th), Kathy Castor (D-FL 14th), Alan Grayson (D-FL 9th), Michael Honda (D-CA 17th), Jared Huffman (D-CA 2nd), and Tim Ryan (D-OH 13th). H.R. 3535, the Alice Cogswell and Anne Sullivan Macy Act, will amend the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act to address the unique needs of these populations. This is truly a historic event, and we should be proud of our efforts to make this happen in the United States.


However, there still is much work to be done. The bill needs to gain the sponsorship of many more House members, and it needs to be introduced in the Senate. Please take a few moments to contact your Congressional members to ask them to sponsor this bill. It is easy to contact them through their web site, and you can use the sample letters. Be sure to tailor them to your particular situation.

Thanks for all you do to support Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Blind, Visually Impaired, and Deaf-Blind children in the United States.
