The Fukuyama-shi Assembly in Hiroshima Prefecture adopted the written opinion which asks the Government, etc. for establishment of a "sign language law" on December 20.

This was made after a few recent moves including Tottori Prefecture and Ishikari-shi, Hokkaido that have defined the ordinance with which positions sign language as the same as a spoken language.
