The Georgia Senate on Monday passed a bill to provide blind and visually-impaired K-12 students with Braille instruction.

Sen. Gail Davenport (D-Jonesboro) presented Senate Bill 4 shortly before 10 p.m. on Crossover Day.

“It is real important that every child has an opportunity to learn Braille,” Davenport said. “This bill impacts every blind and visually-impaired person in the state of Georgia.”

The measure passed 55-0. It now goes to the House.
