Advocacy: National Council on Disability on HR3765 (link is broken) (summary)
PAST and PRESENT LEADERSHIP of the National Council on Disability on H.R. 3765, the ADA Education and Reform Act: "No business should be given what essentially amounts to a pass to continue to violate a law that was established more than a quarter-century ago to end the pervasive discrimination against people with disabilities that prevented us from going to movies, eating in restaurants, shopping in stores, going to museums and sporting events, and simply being an active part of our communities."
