Senators Snowe, Harkin Introduce Bipartisan Bill to Improve Early Hearing Detection in Children

U.S. Senators Olympia J. Snowe (R-Maine) and Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) today announced bipartisan legislation to improve the early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of hearing loss in young children. Each year, more than 12,000 babies are born with a hearing loss. The Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Act of 2010 builds on the success of legislation introduced nearly a decade ago by Snowe, Harkin, and former Senator Bill Frist (R-Tenn.), the Newborn and Infant Hearing Screening and Intervention Act of 1999. The measure, which was enacted into law in 1999, helped achieve major progress in screening young children for hearing loss.
