The Senate is about to vote on passing a bill approved last week by the House of Representatives that will severely limit the powers of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Broadly speaking, it will limit the amount of legal protection and options that persons with disabilities, as well as reduce the responsibilities of property owners and business employers. The ACLU lists the bill’s flaws here.
If you want your state Senator to vote no on this bill, you can call them directly at (202) 224-3121 and leave a message on their voice mail. You can also email them as well.
Remember that by speaking up against unfair legislation like this bill, we can all make a difference!
