Disability Rights New Mexico, New Mexico Commission for Deaf and Hard of Hearing, New Mexico Technology Assistance Program, and the wonderful team at the office of the Legislative Council are excited to share some of the accessibility improvements that have been implemented at the State Capitol.  Creating an accessible environment requires an understanding of the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) and a commitment to identifying issues and working to address them.  The Office of the Legislative Council is dedicated to this task and to making our state capitol accessible to all New Mexicans. Special thanks to Raul Burciaga, Director of the Legislative Council and his amazing team!
