On March 14, 2010, the NAD and consumer groups filed comments with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) responding to questions about funding for video relay services (VRS), for an interim one-year period from July 2010 through June 2011. In our comments we told the FCC to make sure that the rates continue the current level of relay services and continue to advance functionally equivalent telecommunications.

NAD President, Dr. Bobbie Beth Scoggins, has released a two part ASL video explaining the current situation regarding VRS in the hopes that it will clear up some of the confusion out there.
