196 co-sponsors! And other ADA Restoration News

Posted on 13 September 2007. Filed under: ADA Restoration Act of 2007, Advocacy, Audism |

If you have been monitoring the ADA Restoration blog (which I highly recommend to anyone serious about staying on top of the latest news), then you know that we now have 196 co-sponsors for the House version of the ADA Restoration Act of 2007 (HR 3195). They have listed the 8 newest co-sponsors. The goal is to reach 218 co-sponsors in the House. So please do contact your legislators!

In other news, the ADA Restoration Act blog has also posted a letter from the National Council on Disability (NCD) to Congress in support of the ADA Restoration Act. NCD’s letter is worth reading (follow the link) because it explains some of the investigation they have done into the effectiveness of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the resulting reports. They explore where the ADA succeeded, and where it failed, and why. Their letter links to the reports they completed on this subject.


Want to learn more? See my running list of blog entries on the ADA Restoration Act from all over the web. Also, don’t miss these: One group of activists has posted a short list of simple ideas of things you can do. And do check out the ADA Restoration Blog for updates. Or browse through more background information on the ADA Restoration Act. Or contact your legislators (just be sure to uncheck the box asking to be added to their action alert email list, unless you want to receive them).
