The Alice Cogswell and Anne Sullivan Macy Act has been introduced in the House of Representatives as H.R. 1120 and in the Senate as S. 2087. AFB and organizations across the blind, deafblind, and deaf communities are working hard to drum up ever more support for these bills, so that this legislation can become a reality. Keep reading to find out more about what the bills would do and how you can take action to have them turned into law.
