Today is the Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act

Help Restore Its Original Intent

In recent years, the intent of the ADA has eroded — often not providing enough protection for individuals with disabilities. Help commemorate the anniversary today by helping restore its primary intent.

Ask your Representative to support people who live with disabilities and cosponsor the ADA Restoration Act of 2007. Click here and enter your ZIP code to send a quick e-mail.

This bill aims to restore the ADA's clear and comprehensive national mandate for the elimination of discrimination on the basis of disability. In recognition of the ADA, Representatives Steny Hoyer (MD) and James Sensenbrenner (WI) are expected to introduce the ADA Restoration Act of 2007 today.

I think you're completely right. The interpretation of the original intention isn't what it used to be. It's probably the leaps and bounds that technology has been taking. It's hard for hard paper laws to keep up in a digital society.
