Remarks by President Bill Clinton at the 9th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act

Today I join Americans across our country in celebrating the 9th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Next year, at the dawn of the millennium, we will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the 25th anniversary of the Individuals with Disabilities Act. These two laws, championed by disability advocates throughout the United States and serving as a beacon for people throughout the world, have helped to transform our nation's disability policy.

ICW Speech

Ms. Linda Dickerson
Principal
Dickerson & Mangus, Ink.
ICW Speech
Indiana Country Club
October 12, 1998

Thank you for that generous introduction. I wish that my parents were here with us tonight to hear that introduction. My father would listen intently, but my mother - she'd believe every word of what you said. It's easy these days to be a good after-dinner speaker. To succeed, all you have to do is promise to not mention the words Monica Lewinsky for a full half hour, and people will love whatever else you have to say.

But that won't stop me from talking about it.

Remarks of President George Bush at the Signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act

Evan, thank you so much. And welcome to every one of you, out there in this splendid scene of hope, spread across the South Lawn of the White House. I want to salute the Members of the United States Congress, the House and the Senate who are with us today -- active participants in making this day come true. This is, indeed, an incredible day -- especially for the thousands of people across the Nation who have given so much of their time, their vision, and their courage to see this act become a reality.
