188 House Co-Sponsors for ADA Restoration Act!
According to the ADA Restoration Act blog, 7 more Congressional representatives become co-sponsors for the ADA Restoration Act. The ADA Restoration Act blog says they joined probably because many advocates were busy writing letters and making phone calls to their legislators during the August recess.
This brings the total of co-sponsors up to 188. We need to get 20 more in order to have the majority vote we need to pass the House version of the ADA Restoration Act (that’s H.R. 3195 …. the Senate version is numbered S. 1881). Read more about the news, including a list of the 7 new co-sponsors (see if YOUR representative is on it), and what YOU can do to help, at http://adarestoration.blogspot.com/2007/09/house-co-sponsors-update.html
