President Donald Trump is looking to reverse a federal rule that says disabled people are prohibited from using certain languages, including some of the more sensitive ones.
The White House released a draft executive order on Wednesday to end the language barring people with disabilities from using specific dialects of English.
The language policy, which was issued in 2016, prohibits the use of language that “exceeds the minimum level of proficiency in English required for the person to understand the content of the communication” required by federal law.
Trump has repeatedly said he believes the language is too restrictive.
Trump’s draft order calls for removing the language on federal buildings and other government buildings, except in emergency situations, and requiring that the language be used only when it is required by law.
It also proposes making it more difficult for the federal government to block or deny disability-related documents to people who are legally able to access them.
The language is a result of a landmark lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union and a group of people with hearing loss and other disabilities.
It was challenged by the Trump administration in February when it proposed the language change.
The Trump administration has defended the language in court.
In June, the Justice Department told the courts that the Trump order had the authority to change the language.
The administration said that the order could be interpreted as giving people with speech or language impairments the right to use language that is “comparable to that of the general public” as long as they do not exceed the minimum language proficiency level.
