Proposals To Americans With Disabilities Act

Twenty years ago, our government passed the Americans with Disabilities Act to provide laws that will ensure equality and fundamental rights to individuals living with a disability. The Washington Post is reporting that the Obama administration is in the process of proposing changes that will make everyday life a little easier for disabled Americans.

According to a white house press release, some of the changes include:

Creating easier access to kiosks and ATM's for individuals in wheelchairs

Providing access to 911 through internet-enabled access

Require movie theatres to show movies with closed captions
