Subject: Cosponsorship of the Disability Integration Act (HR.2472)

Congressman Veasey was a cosponsor of the Disability Integration Act during the 114th Congress (then HR.5689), but he has not yet signed on as a DIA cosponsor during the 115th (HR.2472). The bills are virtually identical. Only very minor changes were made to address some drafting issues which has resulted in even more broad-based support for the bill. Attached is an information packet explaining DIA as well as the Dear Colleague letter from Sensenbrenner???s office inviting cosponsors.

If the Congressman has some concern preventing him from continuing to support this critically important civil rights legislation that protects the Constitutional rights to Life and Liberty for Disabled Americans, we would like to discuss that. Otherwise, we look forward to him again signing on as a cosponsor. To sign on, contact Amy Bos at Amy.Bos@mail.house.gov.

Thank you.
