Del. governor to sign deaf services bill
WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) -August 3, 2012 (WPVI) -- Delaware Gov. Markell says he will sign two bills providing services for people with hearing and speech disabilities.
Markell's office says the governor plans to sign the bills Friday morning at the Carvel State Office Building in Wilmington.
One bill provides telecommunications services for the deaf and those with hearing loss or speech disabilities. The other updates the Universal Newborn and Infant Hearing Screening Act. The update requires a tracking and intervention protocol when a child has been identified as needing additional hearing services. It also creates the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Advisory Board.
