"....The House endorsed on Tuesday changing the way Utah Code refers to the deaf, using terminology preferred by the deaf community....."

Utah finally is doing the right thing for deaf and hard of hearing community. Utah has always been doing it backward for years. We're waiting for UT governor to sign the bill, removing the word, hearing impairment. If it happens, they will become the first state to pass the bill. Let's hope other states will follow!

Hope people in Utah will change their attitude toward the deaf and hard of hearing community.
