U.S. Representative Jim Langevin (D-RI) officially introduced H.R. 6248, legislation ANCOR previewed earlier this month when we issued a letter of support for the proposal. The bill would improve paratransit supports, pedestrian rights-of-way, data accessibility and protection of accessibility rights through enhancement of the transportation accessibility complaints process. All these measures would ultimately improve transportation for people with disabilities. Lack of access to transportation is one of the major challenges which keep people with disabilities from participating in society, including finding employment.
