who all knew the answer to last week's trivia question:

What did Albert Einstein say “remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school”?


This week's trivia question: 


On July 26, 1990, President George W. Bush said that this new federal civil rights law “presents us all with an historic opportunity. It signals the end to the unjustified segregation and exclusion of persons with disabilities from the mainstream of American life". He further stated that that this new law... “will likewise come to be a model for the choices and opportunities of future generations around the world”. What is this federal civil rights law that continues today to prohibit discrimination against people with disabilities in everyday activities?
