American Foundation for the Blind Applauds Senate Introduction of Cogswell-Macy Act, Calls for Further Action
Announces National Call-In Day to Urge Congress to Take Action
The Cogswell-Macy Act, federal bipartisan legislation aimed at improving special education for students with sensory disabilities, was introduced in the Senate this week by Senators Ed Markey (D-MA) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) as S.2087. The House of Representatives version of the bill (H.R.1120) was introduced in February by Reps. Matt Cartwright (D-PA) and David McKinley (R-WV). The American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) is now calling on all Americans concerned about public education for students with disabilities to take part in a National Call-In Day Wednesday, November 15, to encourage Congress to keep moving this legislation forward in support of children who are blind or visually impaired, deaf or hard of hearing, or deafblind.
