On Tuesday, July 26, 2011, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) celebrates its 21st anniversary, having been signed into law on this same day in 1990 by President George H.W. Bush.

Ironically, after erosion of some categories of protection in the landmark legislation, President George W. Bush, the former president's son, signed into law the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) in 2008, giving the original bill new teeth with which to protect the disabled.

The intention of the 1990 law, which the ADAAA now restores, was to create civil rights protections for people with disabilities that would be permanent, would not be able to be reversed or weakened, and would prohibit all discrimination.

Numerous court decisions over the years, however, did exactly do that—weaken the protections, and thus the need for the ADAAA.
