ACB – Thank you, President Obama

A lot of work went in to getting this bill this far. I kept meaning to write about it from all the e-mails I was getting, but just never remembered. Thank you ACB members and whoever else fought tirelessly for this.

From an ACB e-mail:

Excerpt from the Presidential Proclamation on National Disability 
Employment Awareness Month:

”We must improve the accessibility of our workplaces and enable the 
collaboration and contributions of every employee, and that is why I 
look forward to signing into law the Twenty-First Century 
Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010. This legislation 
will greatly increase access to technology, with advances in areas 
such as closed captioning, delivery of emergency information, video 
description, and other advanced communications — all essential tools 
for learning and working in today’s technological society.”
