Missourians with disabilities, just like all Missouri citizens, are encouraged to actively participate in the legislative process. This might include visiting the capitol to present testimony at a legislative hearing, to attend a bill signing, or to talk with an elected official.
The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability. Title II of the ADA covers all activities of state government, requiring state government programs, services, and activities be usable by and accessible to individuals with disabilities. The Missouri State Capitol, as part of state government, provides access through building access features and provision of auxiliary aids and services.
The following links are designed to provide information about accessibility in the state capitol so that Missourians with disabilities can fully participate in the state government activities.
