The Arc Thanks Retiring Congressional Champions

In a video tribute, The Arc honors retiring Congressional champions Senator Tom Harkin (IA), Senator Jay Rockefeller (WV), Senator Carl Levin (MI), Representative Henry Waxman (CA), Representative George Miller (CA), and Representative John D. Dingell (MI). These long-serving Members of Congress were integral to the passage and strengthening of many landmark bills for people with disabilities including the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Affordable Care Act, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act, and the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. Additionally, these champions have been leaders in the preservation and expansion of essential supports and services under Medicaid, early intervention, Social Security, and in many other areas. Join The Arc on Twitter and Facebook as we thank these retiring champions at the close of the 113th Congress.
