The Legislature -- Assistive listening equipment is available in the Senate and House chambers and in legislative hearing rooms. It is helpful to call ahead for assistive listening equipment to ensure they are in working order. American Sign Language interpreters are available on alternating Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10:00-5:00 during the legislative session. Generally, interpreters can be scheduled to interpret legislative meetings on those days and are available to help legislators communicate with constituents visiting the State House during these hours.
