Major concern! Please check this out. Hopefully, we can stop our representative from weakening ADA
House Judiciary Committee Approved H.R. 620 – Contact Your Representatives!
On Thursday, September 7, 2017, the House Judiciary Committee held a markup of H.R. 620, the ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017. The bill was voted out of committee along party lines and will now go to the full House for a vote. All of the amendments proposed by democrats were voted down, also along party lines.
H.R. 620 is not a good bill and it’s passage would be a major step backwards for people with disabilities. The bill would weaken the protections afforded people with disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act and make it harder for them to enforce their rights under the ADA. Twenty seven years after the passage of the ADA, we should not support legislation that makes it easier to discriminate against people with disabilities.
If you have the ability to do so, please contact your Representatives to let them know H.R. 620 is harmful to people with disabilities and to not support this legislation. Thank you.
