I just heard that HB 2589, the children's hearing aid bill, will be headed to the House floor with bipartisan support from the Health Care Committee. Only one member of the committee voted no, Ron Maurer, and it was noted that he very rarely supports mandates. This is great news! Within the next week or two, we should find out when the bill is likely to be up for a vote of the full House.
Anyone who is interested in contacting their state representative and urging his or her support of the bill is welcome to do so.

Thank you very much!
