There’s a new bill in Congress, HR 3101, that if it passes, will require captioning on the Internet. The 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act was introduced in Congress on June 26, 2009 by Representative Ed Markey.
If you are a supporter, it is very important to email Congress about this bill to increase its chances of survival and passage. Use https://writerep.house.gov/writerep/welcome.shtml to contact
Representatives and ask them to co-sponsor the bill. Captioning supporters also need a similar bill introduced in the Senate, so use http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm to contact Senators.
