H.R. 620, a bill in the United States Congress, is strongly opposed by many civil rights and disability rights organizations, but passed in the United States House of Representatives by a vote of 225-192. The bill reportedly would make it more difficult for millions of individuals with disabilities to access equal rights protections. Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) is speaking out against the legislation, saying the bill essentially unravels 25 years of progress made by the Americans with Disabilities Act. More than 200,000 Hawaii residents are disabled—which is 15% of the state’s population, according to the Hawaii Disability Rights Center. The bill has also drawn sharp criticism from organizations such as the National Federation of the Blind of Hawaii and the Aloha State Association of the Deaf.
