Advocacy Update: Protect the ADA

NCIL Senate Letter To Protect the ADA

One More Chance to Sign on Your Organization!
6614494-3×2-700×467

Last year, NCIL sent House leadership a letter signed by 507 organizations urging them to oppose H.R. 620, the ADA Education and Reform act of 2017. On February 15, H.R. 620 passed through the House. Our fight now moves to the Senate, where we must urge them not to take up this dangerous bill!

As a reminder, the original letter was a response to a letter from the business community titled “It’s Time to Restore the Integrity of the ADA” (PDF). Sent on the 27th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, members of the business community celebrated the anniversary by diminishing this historic civil rights legislation and expressing their support for H.R. 620.

Now that the House has passed H.R. 620, NCIL is re-opening the letter for signatories and moving on to the Senate. We have updated the letter, and it will be sent to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Chick Schumer.

We encourage you to add your organization as a signatory.

See a list of current signatories. If your organization signed on to the House letter, you will be kept on as a signatory. If you would like to remove your organization from the letter, please contact Eleanor at eleanor@ncil.org no later than March 2, 2018.

The deadline to sign on is Friday, March 2, 2018. Please join us as we fight this dangerous bill!
