Article on NCD's Proposed "ADA Restoration Act"

Michael Waterstone passes along an interesting article from Cox News Service that neither he nor I can find on the web. Here are the first few grafs:

Leaders of several national disability groups are hesitating to endorse a recommendation by President Bush's disability advisers that he and Congress rewrite the Americans With Disabilities Act next year.

The National Council on Disability, whose 15 members were nominated by Bush and confirmed by the Senate, reported this month that "many Americans with disabilities feel that a series of negative court decisions is reducing their status to second-class citizens, a status that the ADA was supposed to remedy forever."

Most disability advocates agree. But some fear that if Congress takes up the council's proposed "ADA Restoration Act," it might end up making the law weaker, instead of stronger.
