The Civil Rights Act of 1990. aka the ADA, Americans With Disabilities Act was passed by Congress, and signed into law by George Bush, to extend protections afforded by the Civil Rights Act of 1964, based on race, religion, etc, to People With Disabilities.

Ironically, the authour of the Civil Rights Act Of 1990, Tony Coelho had epilepsy, but the USSC ruled that epilepsy wasn't a disability.
