WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 15, 2018) – Today, Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement after voting no on H.R. 620, the ADA Education and Reform Act.

“I expressed a number of concerns with this legislation to my colleagues over the past week. While I can appreciate and understand the intent to provide fairness to businesses, any changes should preserve the spirit of the ADA and reduce the burden on individuals with disabilities to bring legitimate compliance claims. Everyone, no matter their ability, should have access to the same accommodations in their communities as their peers. The ADA was enacted more than 25 years ago to protect the disability community, and as part of that community, I could not in good conscience vote for this bill.”
