The Idaho Human Rights Act and the federal Americans with Disabilities Act are two of the most important pieces of legislation that guarantee freedom, equality, and self-government for those with disabilities. These laws are linked to the statutes of the Idaho Code and enforced by regulations found on the Department of Administration's website.
DISability Rights Idaho (DRI)is a private, nonprofit organization that serves as the Idaho Protection and Defense System. It is responsible for monitoring polling stations across the state to ensure they are accessible to all Idahoans.
Additionally, USERRA protects the rights and benefits of military service members by clarifying the law, improving enforcement mechanisms, and adding Federal Government employees to those already eligible for assistance from the Department of Labor in processing claims. Access to Justice Idaho raises funds to support three main providers of civil legal services for poor and vulnerable Idahoans: Idaho Legal Aid Services (ILAS), the Idaho Volunteer Lawyers Program (IVLP), and DISability Rights Idaho (DRI). Bellevue College complies with all Washington federal and state laws and regulations related to providing services to students with disabilities. Furthermore, a disabled veteran's spouse may receive an additional ten points added to their approval score or grade if they are disqualified from holding a federal position in the general line of their usual occupation due to a service-related disability.
Events held in collaboration with Disability Rights of Idaho (DRI), Special Olympics Idaho, and Idaho Parents Unlimited (IPUL) help raise awareness about disability rights. Veterans who qualify for this license plate are eligible for the Nebraska motor vehicle tax exemption for disabled veterans (see the state tax section above).
