Article 18 was withdrawn! Thank you to RIRID members who emailed the Senate Finance Committee in opposition!
Article 19 has been heard by the Senate Committee on Finance and the House Committee on Finance. Although there was much opposition from RIRID and the affected professions, RIRID will continue to send out letters of opposition. Thank you to RIRID members who email the House Finance Committee in opposition! They noted your emails in their discussion.
RIRID will be drafting letters for the Governor's office and several members of her leadership explaining why Article 19 will have a detrimental impact on the Deaf Community. Stay tuned to our site and your inbox for more info.
