Marking 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act

BUFFALO, NY - In honor of the 25th anniversary of passage of the federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Governor Cuomo on Sunday signed two pieces of new legislation.

One of the laws protects people with disabilities who are refused access to public places. The other is designed to make it easier for military families who have relatives with disabilities.

Meanwhile in Buffalo, Canalside held a special celebration Sunday afternoon to mark the anniversary. The party was hosted by Western New York Independent Living. They're an organization that works with people who have developmental, physical or mental disabilities.

"It's about awareness and education," said Yvette Lucas of WNY Independent Living, "to make people more aware about persons with disabilities and the things that they have to contend with."
