Bush, George H.W.

  • “This Act is powerful in its simplicity. It will ensure that people with disabilities are given the basic guarantees for which they have worked so long and so hard. Independence, freedom of choice, control of their own lives, the opportunity to blend fully and equally into the rich mosaic of the American mainstream.”

    President George H.W. Bush
    ADA Signing Ceremony - July 26,1990

  • “This Act does something important for American business. You've called for new sources of workers. Well, many of our fellow citizens with disabilities are unemployed, they want to work and they can work. And this is a tremendous pool of people who will bring to jobs diversity, loyalty, proven low turnover rate, and only one request, the chance to prove themselves.”

    President George H.W. Bush
    ADA Signing Ceremony - July 26,1990
