Gov. Evers Signs Bill to Reform Sign Language Interpreting Licensure System in Wisconsin

On Wednesday, July 17, 2019, Cardinal Capital Management hosted the ceremonial bill signing of Assembly Bill 250 at Water Tower View apartments in Greenfield, Wisconsin. Signed into law by Gov. Tony Evers, Assembly Bill 250, now 2019 Wisconsin Act 17, protects deaf and hearing communities with the appropriate sign language interpreter licensure processes.

“We’re working to ensure deaf and hard of hearing folks across our state have access to reliable and experienced interpreters no matter the situation or circumstance,” said Gov. Evers. “This is a critical first step toward inclusion and equity for the deaf and hard of hearing community, and, perhaps most importantly, that we are committed to making sure they have a say in the issues that directly affect their daily lives and well-being.”
