Proposed Bill Would Allow People With Disabilities To Have Access To Home and Community-Based Services.

January 24, 2019

Disability Scoop (1/24, Diament) reports that a new bill was introduced in Congress that could “ensure that people with disabilities who are eligible for institutional care would have the right to access those same services in their own homes, if they choose.” Supporters of the legislation say it would strengthen the Americans with Disabilities Act and bolster the Supreme Court’s ruling from Olmstead v. L.C. that found people with disabilities should have the right to access services within their community.
