The 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act was celebrated last week as we marked the progress we have made in two decades toward equal rights and full inclusion of people with disabilities in community life.
In New Hampshire, we not only looked back at our accomplishments but moved several steps forward, thanks to the work of the governor and Legislature, and of hundreds of tireless advocates.
Even as we celebrated the ADA’s anniversary, the governor signed into law three bills that protect the rights of people with disabilities. The new laws limit the use of restraint of children in schools and treatment centers, and they make hearing aids and treatment for autism more affordable.
