Bill Hearing Alert: HF1408 (Becker-Finn) on Thursday, March 3, 2022 at 10:30 AM

CDI in Classrooms

3/2/2022 1:21:54 PM

Interior view of the brilliant blue and gold Capitol Rotunda ceiling with MNCDHH's logo and the text,

HF1408 will be heard by the Education Finance committee. This bill will modify language in educational interpreter law. Currently, the language requires that an educational interpreter must complete an Interpreter Training Program (ITP). Nationwide, there is no ITP for Certified Deaf Interpreters (CDIs). The language in this bill would allow a CDI to work in schools without completing an ITP program and would allow school districts to be reimbursed for the salary of the CDI.

MNCDHH's government relations director, Alicia Lane-Outlaw, members of the Nathanson family, Jimmy Beldon, CDI and interpreting agency co-owner, and Trevor Turner from the Minnesota Council on Disability will be testifying to support this bill. 

Please attend and support this bill.


Thursday, March 3, 2022 at 10:30 AM 


The hearing will be streamed live at the House Television Webcast and Mobile Streaming Schedule
