Demonstrators interrupting a hearing in the House Rules Committee to protest reforms to the Americans with Disabilities Act were arrested and dragged out of the room inside the US Capitol on Tuesday. Several protesters who require wheelchairs were forcibly removed from the hearing room just outside the House chamber. Videos posted on social media show the incident as it unfolded. Demonstrators can be seen chanting as law-enforcement officers drag them out of the room. The protesters took issue with the House Rules Committee considering the ADA Education and Reform Act, which alters the landmark 1990 law so that individuals claiming disability-related discrimination would have to notify companies in writing, with new correspondence and response times attached.
