Earlier this afternoon, Illinois Association of the Deaf (IAD) President Corey Axelrod and Legislative Chairperson Jason Altmann sent Governor Bruce Rauner a letter on behalf of IAD requesting he sign SB1839 into law.

SB1839 ensures 9-1-1 funding remains and Deaf, DeafBlind, Late Deafened, Speech-Disabled and Hard of Hearing Illinois residents will continue to benefit from the Illinois Relay Phone System and numerous telecommunication devices Illinois Telecommunications Access Corporation (ITAC) distributes.

Please contact Governor Rauner’s office at 217-782-0244 or e-mail at gov.goca@illinois.gov to request his support of SB1839.
