Two weeks ago the United States House of Representatives voted to pass HR 620, officially titled the "ADA Education and Reform Act", with 225 members of Congress voting Yea and 192 voting Nay.
While the vote was mostly along party lines, I was saddened to see that a dozen Democrats joined 213 Republicans to vote for it...putting it over the top.
What would H.R. 620 actually do? I don't know a whole lot about disability advocacy, I admit, but according to the American Civil Liberties Union:
The so-called “ADA Education and Reform Act”weakens the Americans with Disabilities Act and undermines one of the key goals of the law.
As everyone's heard by now, there was ANOTHER horrific school massacre by a white supremacist Trump supporter*, this time at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Seventeen students and teachers were murdered, and another fourteen were wounded and hospitalized.
*Update: It turns out that while he is a white supremacist himself, he isn't necessarily an official member of any specific white supremacist organization, not that it makes much difference.
