News 14 Carolina has the story of a 9 year old lobbyist who fought for passage of a bill to expand hearing aid insurance coverage.
Even though he is not yet a teenager, Collin [Tastet] walked the halls of the General Assembly as a lobbyist. His goal was to get hearing aids covered under the State Health Plan.
“I just wanted to help other kids because I have hearing aids too,” he said. “And I know how important they are and how they help you hear.”
