Suggested Script:

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from Olympia.

I’m calling to urge Senator Maria Cantwell to oppose HR 620, the ADA Education and Reform Act. It is unacceptable to make individuals with disabilities responsible for ensuring businesses comply with the ADA. This bill goes against the spirit of the ADA and will hinder full access to local businesses for people with disabilities.

Thank you for your time and attention.
