Iowa Press Special: Americans With Disabilities Act


This special episode focuses on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)—its development and implementation, its impact on current politics and public policy, and legislation at the state and federal levels that may need updating for future generations. Host Kay Henderson and Iowa reporters invite guests to discuss the past, present and future of the ADA. The legislation has deep roots in Iowa politics through former Iowa Senator Tom Harkin, who shaped the ADA and left a public policy legacy in the realm of disability issues. Those priorities are still championed today through work at Drake University's Harkin Institute and many of Iowa's federal, state and local government representatives.
