The Folks at the Heritage Foundation Don't Like the ADAAA
See this piece, which begins:
Last week, with the backing of big business groups, organized labor, and disability rights groups, the House of Representatives passed an amended version of the ADA [Americans with Disabilities Act] Restoration Act (ADARA, H.R. 3195). Though touted by supporters as a moderate compromise, the legislation greatly expands the class of Americans who are "disabled," and thus legally entitled to special treatment. This new classification would impose a heavy burden on employers, especially small businesses, while actually disadvantaging those who have serious disabilities. At a time when economic growth has slowed and unemployment has begun to tick upward, Congress should avoid policies that reduce businesses' flexibility, raise the cost of labor, promote inflation, and dampen America's economic competitiveness in the global market.
