Congressman Langevin issued the following statement in response to the U.S. Department of Justice finding of Americans with Disabilities Act violations in Rhode Island:

"The revelation of civil rights abuses in Rhode Island twenty three years after passage of the Americans With Disabilities Act is extremely troubling. There is simply no excuse for discrimination or segregation in any form, and we owe it to these children and others like them to ensure treatment like this is not allowed to continue. The settlement announced today appears to be a positive step toward addressing the mistakes of the past and ensuring that people with disabilities have every opportunity to achieve meaningful employment at a fair wage and in the most integrated setting possible."
