What is the ADA American Disabilities Act
The landmark Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), is federal legislation that congress enacted in 1990, and prohibits the discrimination against those with disabilities. The five areas protected from discrimination are employment, public state and local government services, public accommodations & commercial facilities, telecommunications, and a variety of other miscellaneous facilities. Miscellaneous facilities on the federal and state level, such as bus service, government meetings, public schools & universities, recreation facilities, and state parks are all to meet federal standards to accommodate our citizens with disabilities.
