HR1120 : The Alice Cogswell and Anne Sullivan Macy Act has been introduced in the US House of Representatives, but we need many more House members to sign on to the bill. The bill then needs to go to the Senate. (NOTE: HR 1120 was HR 3535 in the 114th Congress (https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/3535/text). Now that Congress has opened the 115th session, this act is HR 1120.
H.R. 1120 is sponsored by Rep. Matt Cartwright, with 15 original cosponsors!
