Subject: [NFB-Legislative-Directors] Update on ATAA in Build Back Better Act


Dear Legislative Directors:


A new version of the Build Back Better Act (H.R. 5376) was released earlier today. Unfortunately, the Access Technology Affordability Act was not restored to the bill. We anticipate the House will move quickly to pass this version of the bill. Even if this happens, there is still a possibility we can get the ATAA restored when the bill goes to the Senate. We will keep you updated on our strategy. For the time being, please continue to advocate with both Speaker Pelosi’s and Majority Leader Schumer’s offices. 




John G. Paré Jr. 

Executive Director for Advocacy and Policy
