Rep. Doggett: I greatly enjoyed interviewing with Tamara Suiter-Ocuto for her American Sign Language (ASL) news program on ACCESS News. Jennifer Stoker, pictured on the right, kindly translated for both of us. This unique ASL program airs with captions and a voiceover. We covered many topics, and I am thankful for their efforts to help communicate to all our neighbors. I have been involved in the Texas deaf community since my work as a young state senator, and authored a Texas law expanding the rights of deaf persons to interpreters in civil, administrative, and criminal proceedings.
