Description:

"On June 25, 2008, the House passed the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (H.R. 3195) by a vote of 402-17. The ACLU supported this legislation because it will restore the original promise of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 that individuals with disabilities who are willing and able to work should be able to do so free from discrimination. Unfortunately, a series of Supreme Court decisions have eroded that basic promise. By restoring the law's original intent, the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 will afford greater protections to the thousands of individuals unfairly refused coverage because of the Court's narrow interpretations."
