Monday was the 20th anniversary of Congress passing the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA).  The House of Representatives celebrated the anniversary by having a member with a disability preside over the House for the first time in our nation's history.  Meanwhile, the president cited the ADA as "one of the most comprehensive civil rights bills in the history of this country."

Indeed, the law has done more for those with disabilities in our country than anything seen before.  Yet there is a lot of work to be done.  Over the next three days, Different Spokes will take a look at a number of the issues surrounding the ADA. This will include the positives, and of course, the negative aspects of this complicated issue. So check back often as we celebrate 20 years of one of our most important milestones!
