American Bar Association Approves Air Travel Resolution
By PVA National Staff
At the American Bar Association’s (ABA’s) midyear meeting, delegates approved a resolution urging Congress to amend the Air Carrier Access Act to include a private right of action. The resolution will allow the ABA to advocate for legislation currently pending in Congress, which is one of PVA’s top priorities.
Sponsored by the ABA’s Commission on Disability Rights, the resolution passed despite opposition from the ABA’s Forum on Air and Space Law. Heather Ansley, AED of Government Relations, assisted the Commission in developing information to support the resolution.
Ms. Ansley also attended the midyear meeting in Austin, Texas, and spoke in support of the resolution.
