TRANSCRIPT: On January 10th, 2017, Governor Eric
Greitens signed Executive Order 1703 that mandated a review of every state agency regulation including those under the jurisdiction of the Missouri Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing and Board for Certification of interpreters. As part of the review process, MCDHH will be accepting public comments to identify regulations that are ineffective, unnecessary, or unduly burdensome. The full text of our rules can be found here: http://s1.sos.mo.gov/cmsimages/adrules/csr/current/5csr/5c100-200.pdf. Comments will be accepted and must be submitted before September 17, 2017. That will be for consideration in the review process. We encourage you to share this with other stakeholders including Deaf
and Hard of Hearing individuals, sign language interpreters, professionals teachers, and family members in order to maximize input.
