Joining advocates and lawmakers from across Kentucky, Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes formally recorded a new law that will help aid communication between more than 700,000 deaf and hard of hearing Kentuckians and law enforcement. Gov. Matt Bevin signed Senate Bill 189 into law last week.
