U.S. Federal Legislation: ADA

A bill broadening the scope of  the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law (P.L. 110-325). Under the law, key provisions of the ADA are clarified. For example, current law provides that a person is considered disabled if an impairment substantially limits a major life activity. The law defines a “major life activity” as caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, seeing, hearing, eating, sleeping, walking, standing, lifting, bending, speaking, breathing, learning, reading, concentrating, thinking, communicating, and working.
