The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities (CRPD) treaty was voted out of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee by a 12-6 vote last Tuesday with every Democrat on the committee and Senators John Barrasso (R-WY) and John McCain (R-AZ) voting “Yea.” This is very bad news! It now will only take a vote on the floor of the Senate to legally require the US to comply with the language of this treaty. President Obama already signed it on July 30, 2009.
