Senate Opposition To House-Passed Bill

Rhode Island Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse have joined  41 Senate colleagues vowing to block what they say is a Republican effort to curtail the civil rights of people living with disabilities.  They say the House-passed bill would gut the bipartisan Americans with Disabilities Act.  They argue the ADA Education and Reform Act would isolate those living with disabilities as the only federally-protected class forced to rely on education, rather than strong enforcement, to exercise their basic civil rights.
