Twenty-seven years after its inception, the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) faces a new challenge from a bill making its through Congress. The bill would basically make it more difficult for handicapped people to lodge complaints against businesses who still (after 27 years!) don't comply with ADA regulations. It also makes it easier for these business to continue delaying compliance. Most who would be affected by the bill agree it's a massive step backwards, and that's why the 217 members of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities sent a letter to Congress opposing the bill. This will be something to keep a careful eye on going forward.
Here's a QuickRead we published recently with more information and links about the bill.
