CART bill signed by the Governor of Rhode Island

On July 11, Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee signed into law legislation that requires a CART provider or interpreter for all court cases where a party or a witness is deaf or hard-of-hearing. The new law makes Rhode Island’s court system among the nation’s most accessible for the deaf or hard-of-hearing. NCRA commends the Rhode Island Legislature for passing this law which will take effect on July 1, 2014.
