Support The Air Carrier Access Amendments Act
United Spinal believes that the Air Carrier Access Amendments Act (H.R. 1696/S. 642) includes a number of new protections that will make air travel more accessible to people with disabilities. This bill would establish the following: 

  • Airline Passengers With Disabilities Bill of Rights
  • Advisory Committee on Disability at the Department of Transportation
  • Better Stowage Options for Assistive Devices
  • Safe & Effective Boarding & Deplaning Process
  • Increased penalties for damaged wheelchairs/mobility aids or bodily injuries, and allowing air travelers to sue in court to recover damages
  • Higher standards for accessibility, safety and airport and airline employee training

Please contact your members of Congress today and ask them to support this bill.
