Two Big Senate Hearings Today

There are two big hearings related to disability law going on in the Senate today.

The Foreign Relations Committee is holding this hearing right now on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.  The illustrious witness list includes Senators John McCain and Tom Harkin, Judy Heumann and Eve Hill from the Obama Administration, and Richard Thornburgh, John Wodatch, Steven Groves, Michael Farris, and John Lancaster.  You can see their testimony and the video of the hearing (captioned, natch) at the link above.

In a few minutes, the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee will be holding this hearing on seclusion and restraint issues.  Witnesses include Dan Crimmins, Cyndi Pitonyak, Michael George, and Debbie Jackson.
