Senator Warren, I am a Deaf man, I admire you, voted for you shortly before moving here in Louisiana, and I oppose this bill. I don't know who lobbied you into the sound amplification business, but the majority of the culturally Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing community cannot afford hearing aids, while this may be helpful to the non-signing/non-culturally Deaf people and the late-deafened adults, this bill does not encourage the fact that hearing aids SHOULD be covered by insurance companies to ensure a fair access to ALL those who need assistance in hearing. While, I personally disagree with the invasive cochlear implants as it is a form of a genocide of our small minority group, it is covered by most insurance companies. I ask you to please reconsider your position on this bill. Thank you.
