ADA Restoration Act Update

In February, NCD released a point-counterpoint document in response to opponents of the ADA Restoration Act. NCD recommended, and remains in strong support of, the restoration of the definition of disability in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The congressional intent of this landmark civil rights legislation was to prevent discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all aspects of society, including employment. Instead, because of a number of Supreme Court decisions, many people with disabilities have experienced discrimination and have been denied ADA protections. The ADA Restoration Act is urgently needed to restore the civil rights of people with disabilities, and NCD will continue to work for ADA restoration.

On June 26, the ADA Amendments Act (formerly, the ADA Restoration Act) (H.R. 3195) passed with bipartisan support in the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 402 to 17. It was then sent to the U.S. Senate for action.

NCD's Righting the ADA report, which contains historical information and a legislative blueprint for restoring the ADA, can be found at http://www.ncd.gov/newsroom/publicatio
