Obama Marks 20th Anniversary of ADA

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- President Obama celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act Monday evening by announcing an update to the "milestone in the journey to equality."
The president signed an executive order establishing the federal government as a "model employer" of people with disabilities.
"We’re going to boost recruitment, we’re going to boost training, we’re going to boost retention," Obama said from the South Lawn of the White House Monday evening, "We’ll better train hiring managers. Each agency will have a senior official who’s accountable for achieving the goals we’ve set. And I expect regular reports."
