LEGISLATIVE TIP: Get a Watchdog

Have a group of people ready on standby to respond to a bill; if you’re not sure about a bill, contact the NAD, we can help figure out if it is a good or bad bill. #TipTuesday #NADLegislativeTip

VIDEO DESC & TRANSCRIPT: Kim is standing in the NAD Headquarters lobby. The NAD logo is at the upper right corner.

“LEGISLATIVE TIPS” appears in white text inside a blue border box, “WITH KIM” is a transparent text inside a small white box.

KIM: State legislators propose lots of bills, and sometimes a couple of them will impact deaf, hard of hearing, hearing impaired people with topics like interpreting, employment, disability and more. It is important that board members and other people stand by — even if some bills don’t seem relevant. Get a group of people ready to respond.

A freeze frame of Kim signing ‘watch’ in pixelated blue overlay and gray background. Below Kim’s hands are black text “GET A WATCH DOG” in white banner. Below text, another white banner with black text appears “(OR TWO)”. A bold blue with black text over lays the previous banner with “(OR THREE!)”

KIM: When something comes up, the group can quickly set up a meeting and respond with opposition or support. If you miss the opportunity, they will not wait for us and they will move forward. Don’t wait until the last minute. It is better to catch it before it is too late. If you’re not sure about a bill, contact the NAD, we can help figure out if it is a good or bad bill.

Video cuts to grey background with the NAD logo quickly changing in different bright colors from teal to white to black to hot pink to green to orange to teal to yellow to purple to finally the official NAD logo with copyright text underneath “The National Association of the Deaf (c) 2019 All Rights Reserved”.
