The Florida House unanimously approved a bill today that would require the state officials to hire a qualified sign language interpreter at televised hurricane briefings. The bill was motivated by having a man incompetantly attempt to interpret evacuation orders just before Hurricane Irma. The bill is sponsored by Richard Stark and you can read the text of the bill here.
