Congress is passing legislation that cuts provisions in the Americans with Disabilities Act. As a military veteran and a champion of disability rights, I will make sure that all places of public accommodation are accessible. Americans with disabilities must have full access to our country’s civic and economic life. As your congressman, I will:
- Support legislation that provides training and support to the newly disabled as well as businesses, so that they may better accommodate people with disabilities.
- Increase tax relief credits and extend family medical leave to support people who are caring for family members with disabilities and chronic illnesses.
- Support and strengthen Medicaid coverage.
