"34 states have government-level agencies for the deaf and hard of hearing. Washington, D.C., which is home to one of the nation's largest per-capita deaf populations, does not -- yet"

"- A historic bill that would create the first-ever Washington, D.C., office for the deaf and hard of hearing is moving closer to fruition thanks to a growing movement that argues it's about time disabled Americans have a government voice in the nation's capital."


Let's hope it pass!

I didn't realize that this didn't exist. My state has it's own individual office, so I just assumed that there was a federal office as well.

I didn't get the impression that it'd be a Federal agency. I think its a city of Washington, D.C. thing.
