Abstract:     
Given the recent enactment of the ADA Amendments Act, this article analyzes a Rawlsian philosophical framework with which to view society’s treatment of people with disabilities. Allocation of resources remains a pervasive concern of economists and attorneys alike. Need, merit, and market compete as means by which to decide who should receive what benefits. This article concludes that while economics can play a powerful role in the initial allocation of limited resources there remains a multifaceted federal role to confront discrimination and promote equity.
