Senate Hearing Scheduled

 

Mark your calendars: The date for the Hearing Aid/Cochlear Implant legislation has been set for March 18th at 10:00 AM at the State Capitol in Hearing Room 411 South.

 

The more people testifying in favor of this bill the better, so please come and say why this bill is critical to the citizens of Wisconsin!

 

There will be more emails to come through the http://www.LetKidsHear.org website on what you can expect at the hearing, but I wanted to make sure that everyone is aware of the date and the time of the hearing.

 


Best, Alicia
