April Message from the Movement

Fellow Federationists:

Many thanks to all who helped make the 2015 session of the Maryland General Assembly a very productive one for the blind of Maryland.  Gov. Hogan appropriated $250,000 to continue the work of the CENA, the Center of Excellence in Nonvisual Access to Education, Public Information, and Commerce.  The Maryland General Assembly kept that money in the budget.  We look forward to the great things that CENA will accomplish, especially its plan to provide access to the over 10 million books in the HathiTrust.
