Remembering President Bush and His Signature Legislation, Americans With Disabilities Act

George H. W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States, died peacefully on November 30th at his home in Houston, Texas.

The former president’s passing comes less than eight months after his wife, Barbara Bush, of 73 years had passed.

Upon his passing we witnessed many well written media articles remembering President Bush. We would like to take a moment to acknowledge his signature legislation, the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), which he signed into law on July 26th, 1990.

Americans With Disabilities Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act is the comprehensive civil rights law addressing the needs of people with disabilities. The ADA prohibits discrimination in employment against people with disabilities. Furthermore, it requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations to individuals with disabilities who are employees or applicants for employment.
