Disability Rights

Congresswoman Maloney believes that it is our duty as a society to ensure that the nearly 1 in 5 Americans living with a disability have the protections and resources necessary to be self-sufficient, contributing members of their communities. Throughout her career she has worked to secure those rights for Americans with disabilities, from cosponsoring the Achieving Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act of 2014 to backing Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security policies that would assist Americans with disabilities.

As a member of the Bipartisan Disability Caucus, Congresswoman Maloney is keenly aware of how legislation disparately affects Americans living with disabilities. Her voting record strongly supports initiatives that advance Americans living with disabilities, including strengthening the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), upholding the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and its protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions, and ensuring affordable housing programs.
