The Americans with Disabilities Act is set to mark its 20th anniversary this month, and advocates have mixed views on the extent of the impact the law has had on improving equality and accessibility for people with disabilities. Some advocates say the law has led to increased accessibility for newly constructed buildings, but others such as Aimee Wehmeier, who has muscular dystrophy and uses a wheelchair, say more needs to be done. "To most people, ADA is just putting up a ramp," Wehmeier said. "I don't think that's changed a lot."
