Blind Lawmaker
In this Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2013 photo, Rep. Cyrus Habib, D-Kirkland, puts on his overcoat following a committee hearing in Olympia, Wash. Habib is Washington state's first blind lawmaker in decades, and his life story is in many ways reflected in the policies he's now championing. The care he received as a child is something he considers as the Legislature explores ways to provide medical coverage for children. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
