Message from Katherine Bouton & HLAA-NYC…
If you are a New York State resident, please urge Governor Kathy Hochul to sign Bill A05683 into law. This bill establishes a State Commission for the Deaf, Deaf-Blind, and Hard of Hearing, similar to commissions in 39 other states. Last year the Governor vetoed a similar bill.
You can make your voice heard in two ways:
- Call the Governor’s Office – (518) 474-8390. State your name and hometown with zip code.
- Send an email via this webpage: https://www.governor.ny.gov/content/governor-contact-form with the message below. Topic = Disabilities.
Gov. Hochul: New York State’s hundreds of thousands of residents with hearing disabilities need a Commission for the Deaf, Deaf-Blind, and Hard of Hearing. Please sign A05683 into law.
Thanks for your support,
Katherine Bouton, President, HLAA-NYC
