Tuberville Joins Bipartisan Bill to Help Americans with Disabilities Save and Thrive

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) joined Senator Eric Schmitt (R-MO), Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), and other colleagues in introducing the bipartisan Ensuring Nationwide Access to a Better Life Experience (ENABLE) Act. The ENABLE Act preserves the ability of people with disabilities and their families to save and invest through tax-free savings accounts while protecting eligibility to federal programs like Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) by making permanent key provisions of the Trump tax cuts currently set to expire at the end of 2025.

“Every human being is created by God and has inherent dignity, including those with disabilities,” said Senator Tommy Tuberville. “After 40 years in the education sector, I have seen firsthand how important it is for teachers, parents, community members, and Congress to work together to ENABLE these people for success. This legislation provides crucial safeguards for people with disabilities to help them invest, save, and achieve independence.”

Senators Tuberville, Schmitt, and Casey are joined by Senators John Boozman (R-AR), Katie Britt (R-AL),  Tom Cotton (R-AR), Markwayne Mullin (R-OK),Tim Kaine (D-VA), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Peter Welch (D-VT), and Ron Wyden (D-OR) in cosponsoring the legislation.
