Senator Harkin: Congress may be restoring ADA

Hark, hark, Senator Harkin!

If you missed it, Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) remarked in a Feb. 27 presentation that the new Congress may push for
restoring the Americans with Disabilities ACT.
He commented that the ADA has been defined narrower than Congress had originally intended.
He also dogged the current Medicare policy restricting wheelchair purchases to only those appropriate around the home, giving no regard to people with disabilities being mobile and activbe in the communities within which they live.
