BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - A sign language interpreter service that faced an uncertain future when the Vermont Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing closed is back in business.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports (https://bit.ly/1bI41RH) the Vermont Interpreter Referral Service is now being run by a program of the Vermont Center for Independent Living.

The service finds American Sign Language interpreters. The interpreters are paid for by the businesses or professionals who are required under the American with Disabilities Act to offer the service.

When the center closed in September, interpreters who didn’t have their own liability insurance couldn’t work with clients. The service searched for an organization that could support the program.
