Americans with Disabilities Act

On July 26, 1990, President George H.W. Bush signed one of America’s most comprehensive pieces of civil rights legislation, prohibiting discrimination against people with disabilities and guaranteeing they have the same opportunities in terms of the ability to work, purchase goods and services, and participation in state and local government programs and services. This was the first text of the law specifically mentioning those with disabilities, and it was modeled after the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as the ADA is an “equal opportunity” law for people with disabilities. The ADA defines disability as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits life activities, and a person who has a history or record of an impairment.
