42nd Cosponsor Joins HR 3101!

Caption Action 2 just learned earlier this afternoon that HR 3101's 42nd cosponsor signed up.

Let us welcome New York State Representative Eliot Engel (D-17)!

Why did Engel sign on? He signed on because of the repeated efforts of his constituent, Sean Gerlis. Sean kept calling, and asking for an appointment with Engel's office. He never got the appointment, but to his pleasant surprise, Engel went ahead and signed on to HR 3101!
Democrats - 42, Republicans - 0.

  1. Hi,

    Curious, how many Democrats and Republicans do we need for passing HR 3101, please?

    Thanks, deafk

  2. A wonderful idea. I'm tickled by the idea of seeing CC on internet. A dream come true. However, if you think long and hard about it, it'd only shift our deaf community further and deeper into liability column. I know, I know, you guys are going to say, 'here you go again, Barry' but it's true. The more we demand of our government the more they'll see us as a liability society. End result? They're going to push even harder for cure and solution to deafness. It's just their nature to think that way. Slap me silly here and I'll take it like a gentleman. I just happen to know how the other side think and operate. Good vlog.

  3. hi thank you so much for helping all the hard of hearing and deaf people to have the closed caption in movies or tv or anything it will be more much better for all of them to see and enjoy or see the cc on the board for the train coming or subway or anywhere
    thank you so much and i really appreciate so much for this
