    Have you read the convention act, revised ? and where else the public access to legislation in relation to the rights of people in America or is it different depending on which state you live in . ? Where can one look up and see why the Senate would not pass it by researching the laws and examining so they can pass the information on to the White house to perhaps get it to be reconsidered again. Or is this soemthing the qhite house agreed with also ? People with disabilities cant not just relying on people who do not have the time to investigate this on behalf of others ?
