Ann Arbor restaurants and businesses will soon be required by law to have closed captions on their televisions. The Ann Arbor News reports that starting in July, bars, hotel lobbies, restaurants and fitness clubs will need to have closed captioning active on their TVs. Supporters of the law are looking to help those who are deaf or have hearing problems. The city council approved the law unanimously, earlier this week. Violations will incur a minimum fine of $50.
