§5-14A-6. Notice of necessity of interpreter -- Proof of deafness.

Every deaf person whose appearance in any proceeding entitles

him or her to an interpreter shall notify the appointing authority

of his or her desire for an interpreter at least forty-eight hours

prior to any appearance and may request at the time the services of

an interpreter: Provided, That if a deaf person reasonably expects

the need for an interpreter for a period greater than a single day,

he or she shall notify the appointing authority and the

notification shall be sufficient for the duration of his or her

participation in the proceedings.

An appointing authority may require a person requesting the

appointment of an interpreter to furnish reasonable proof of his or

her deafness when the appointing authority has reason to believe

that the person is not deaf.
