Legal update: House passes ADA Amendments Act, President will sign “soon”

As expected, the House of Representatives approved the ADA Amendments Act (S. 3406), following a unanimous vote in the Senate less than one week ago.

The legislation now moves to the White House where President Bush is expected to sign “soon,” according to SHRM sources.

“The bill directs the courts toward a more generous application of the ADA's definition of disability, making it clear that Congress intended the ADA's coverage to be broad and to cover anyone facing discrimination because of a disability,” according to the Associated Press.
