Brief Update on the ADA Amendments Act Passage from AUCD
The update below is from the latest edition of the AUCD Legislative News in Brief:
ADA Amendments Act
In a major victory for the disability community, the ADA Amendments Act (ADA-AA) was signed into law on September 25 in a signing ceremony in the Oval Office before a small group including Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD), Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI), Senators Tom Harkin (D-IA) and Orrin Hatch (R-UT), as well as President George H.W. Bush, who signed the original Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in 1990. AUCD staff joined with other disability advocates and congressional staff for a small celebration immediately afterward.
