Subseries 10. Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

Scope and Content Notes:

Although Thornburgh took great pride in being the "point man" for the Bush administration in efforts to pass this landmark civil rights legislation in 1990, much of the work was essentially behind the scenes. Therefore, these files are comparatively few in number, in relation to the significance of the passage of ADA.

The files here include, for example, memoranda, fact sheets, compromise bills, Thornburgh's testimony, and articles by him. In addition, files from the Signing Ceremony, July 26, 1990, and the One Year Anniversary of the Signing, July 26, 1991, are here as well.
