COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- In honor of the Americans with Disabilities Act Anniversary, Lieutenant Governor Dianne Primavera was in Colorado Springs Monday to sign the "Colorado for All" proclamation.
The move comes on the 32nd anniversary of the Act, which ensures legal protections for people with disabilities.
"It's good for businesses. It increases the number of people in establishments and spending money in the economy. Those kinds of things, plus everyone should have the right to shop, to have employment, to recreate, and to have transportation. It's important to treat people with disabilities the same as anybody else," the Lt. Governor said.
State lawmakers have also recently made moves to increase rights for those with disabilities, like making it easier to rent a car with adaptive equipment.
