Mike, This is great.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want;
blindness is not what holds you back

Hello,
Please send me your testimony at Leitlaw at hotmail.com, so that I can make
sure that it is filed correctly. Also please coordinate your efforts with
me, so that I am informed as to what you are doing. Any questions concerning
HB214 should be directed to me as Co-Legislative Chair, and as lead on this
bill. In addition Rep Brown the bill sponsor and I have talked about how to
approach both live and written testimony  And I want to make sure as a group
we are as effective as we can be.  Thank you for all your efforts in
assisting the NFBO with making change.

some of us will be in Columbus next week but this is a great way to help.
Please do what you can.

 

Dear Friends and Advocates,

Every once in a while we come across a chance to make a significant
difference in the world with simply speaking our minds.  Today is that day!!


The Ohio House of Representatives Health Committee is seeking input from
citizens regarding accessible prescription label legislation.  Please take a
moment to write a short letter expressing your concerns and experience in
this regard.  The hope is to give the committee a full understanding of the
struggles and dangers  of managing medications with vision loss or
print-impairment. 

 

Submitted testimonies will be reviewed by the committee on TUESDAY JUNE
25th!!!!!  So please send your email or make a phone call today!  Send a
copy of your letter it to the House Health Committee, to your senator and
legislator and finally to Eric Duffy of the Ohio NFB.  Eric will be at the
capitol testifying in person and can present a copy of your testimony if it
has not been officially logged by the committee yet.   You can find ideas on
what to write in your testimony here:
