US Chamber lauds senate action on the ADA

The United States Chamber of Commerce praised the unanimous passage of the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act saying the legislation strikes the right balance between protections for individuals with disabilities and the obligations and requirements of employers.

“We are pleased that the Senate has passed the ADA Amendments Act and urge the House to take up the legislation and pass it quickly and send it on to the President for signature,” said Randel Johnson, vice president of Labor, Immigration and Employee Benefits at the U.S. Chamber.

“After many months of negotiation, the legislation represents a sound compromise between the Senate, the House, the business community, and the disability community. We urge that it be enacted quickly and signed into law.”

The ADA Amendments Act is a result of long negotiations between interested parties which modified the Americans with Disabilities Restoration Act (H.R. 3195/S. 1891). That bill swept far too broadly and would have covered many individuals under the definition of disabilities which Congress never intended.

The compromise corrects this problem while at the same time recognizing that the U.S. Supreme Court in several cases unduly restricted the definition of disability. Several other problems with the Restoration Act were also corrected.

“The Chamber has been proud of being part of these bipartisan negotiations and to stand with the House and Senate in enacting truly worthy legislation,” said Randel Johnson.

The U.S. Chamber is the world's largest business federation representing more than 3 million businesses and organizations of every size, sector, and region.
