New ADA Amendments Act Text

Is here. The bill flips the Sutton mitigating measures holding, expands the "regarded as" protection, defines "major life activities" to include "major bodily functions," and states that "substantially limits" should be interpreted in accordance with a set of findings that reject the restrictive interpretations of that term adopted by the EEOC and the Supreme Court. This isn't close to everything the disability community wanted, but it's a good compromise that will make a real difference to ADA litigation.
