On January 15, 2019 in honor of the great civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Representative Sensenbrenner, who represents the 5th district in Wisconsin introduced the Disability Integration Act (H.R.555) in the House.
Representative Sensenbrenner said: “The progress we have made since President George H.W. Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act is remarkable. In particular, I am proud of my wife, Cheryl, who has worked tirelessly on behalf of the disability community, and I was honored to stand with her behind President George W. Bush as he signed the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act in 2008. Still, there is much work to be done to strengthen laws to protect individuals with disabilities. I again thank the thousands of advocates who came to Washington D.C. this week, especially those from my home state of Wisconsin. You inspire us to continue pushing on, and I look forward to working together to advance our efforts.”
