Language Access Bill Signing


Staff Attorney Virginia Rosa joined State Senator Cheryl Kagan on May 10 in Annapolis
when the governor signed the website translation bill into law. At the request of Senator
Kagan, Virginia provided testimony before the Education, Health, and Environmental Affairs
Committee in the Maryland Senate in support of Senate Bill 28, the "Language Access
Bill." Senate Bill 28 requires state government agencies to translate their public websites into
any language(s) spoken by 3% or more of Maryland's population according to the most
recent census data.
