Our Legislative Action Corner is to keep you informed about and involved in all important hearing loss issues. . Get involved by exploring our action items below:
Legislative Update: HLAA Wisconsin proposed two bills to state legislators in 2019 designed to help the nearly 500,000 people in Wisconsin who suffer from hearing loss. The bills became numbered, but did not reach the level to be debated and voted on before the session ended. The legislative committee will reintroduce the bills in 2020. A goal is to seek bipartisan support. This is partly about making communication access a required part of dispensing & fitting hearing aids. Everyone who uses hearing aids should be concerned when the people who sell them to us don’t feel obligated to do that. You CAN help. We can change this as 9 other states have.
