20 years ago today, President George H. W. Bush signed into law the Americans with Disabilities Act.
During the signing ceremony, Bush thanked democrats and republicans alike, for working together on the first ever civil rights law enacted for people with disabilities.
The ADA, National Network, says nearly one in six Americans have some form of physical or mental impairment that limits their activities, or makes them dependent on others.
Last year Good Will Dayton served over 10,000 people with disabilities.
