December 19, 2019: Senator Elizabeth Warren (D.-MA) introduced the AIM HIGH Act (S. 3095), along with Senators Michael Bennet (D-CO.), Dan Sullivan (R-AK), Jon Tester (D-MT), and Joni Ernst
(R-IA). The legislation was introduced in the House of Representatives earlier this month.
“This legislation is critically important to all blind students and to me personally, as the father of three children, two of whom are blind,” said Mark Riccobono, President of the National Federation of the Blind. “This issue has been ignored for too long. Blind Americans deeply appreciate Senator Warren’s strong national leadership and advocacy for equal opportunities for all students throughout higher education, and we applaud her for supporting this market-based approach to encouraging technology innovations to be born accessible.”
