The 21st Century Communication and Video Accessibility Act did NOT pass in Congress in 2008. The bill is back and we need your support in signing the petition and helping to spread the word. Rep. Edward J. Markey (D-MA) reintroduced legislation on June 26, 2009 for individuals with disabilities to have access for the Twenty-first Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2009 (H.R. 3101). This bill is referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce. We support the legislative and regulatory proposals of the Coalition of Organizations for Accessible Technology (COAT) to ensure full access by people with disabilities to evolving high speed broadband, wireless, and Internet communication and electronic technologies.
We support COAT's efforts to enact the Twenty-first Century Telecommunications and Video Accessibility Act and other laws and policies that will ensure our equality to telecommunications, the Internet, and television programming!

I just did it, Jill! Anything for you!!!

I didn't have time to read anything, so hopefully it didn't have a give-all-my-assets-to clause in there. HA!
Thank you, Jill, for sticking your neck out and providing all the information necessary for any of us to make our voices heard. I sent to both Senators. Let's hope this time the act passes.
Jill,

I just signed the petition. Markey is my rep. I'm glad to see he is doing something worthwhile.
I just signed, too. Thanks, Jill.
Me, too!

Always good to support those made famous (in part) by ol' Cheap and Sleazy ....

Oh, and I will put the link on my site as well.
