Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 requires recipients of federal funding to afford individuals with disabilities 平等机会 to all services. In 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) spelled out in greater detail the obligations not only of recipients of federal funds but also private businesses and public spaces.
In 2008, 在一系列法院判决削弱了国会对《lol菠菜竞猜》的意图之后, 国会通过了修正案. The ADA Amendments Act reaffirms congress’s intention that the ADA applies to individuals with all types of disabilities including those suffering from long-term illnesses such as cancer or impairments to bodily systems and made clear that mitigating measures should not be taken into effect when determining whether an individual has a disability. The intent and effect of the amendments act was to significantly expand the number of people covered by the ADA.
