Down Syndrome Advocate Sara Wolff Speaks About Her Efforts to Get ABLE Act Passed

The ABLE Act is a major piece of legislation affecting millions of people with disabilities in America. One of the leading advocates, Sara Wolff, who has Down syndrome, talked with attorney Todd O'Malley about her work in Washington, D.C. Wolff, who is a law clerk at O'Malley & Langan, testified before a Senate panel about the impact of the legislation.

At the end of 2014, Congress recently passed the ABLE Act (Achieving a Better Life Experience). The Act creates new tax-exempt investment accounts that allow people born with disabilities to save for future covered expenses. The Act helps people like Sara pay for things like education, transportation and shelter, among other things.

The  "You Be the Judge" video presented by O'Malley & Langan features a discussion with Wolff, Don Broderick, executive director of The Arc of Northeastern, PA, and Mark Priceman, vice president of marketing and communications for the National Down Syndrome Society.
