ADA Reform Bill Watered Down

We regret to report that the ADA reform measure joint-authored by Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg and Senator Bob Dutton - SB 1186 - has been significantly weakened in the latest round of amendments, which were made yesterday.

Previously the bill would have prohibited issuing a demand for money to a building owner or tenant prior to the filing of a complaint and would require an attorney to provide a document that notifies the recipient of any violation at least 30 days prior to filing a claim.

Those provisions have now been removed.

So at this point basically the bill would just require a commercial property owner to state on a lease form or rental agreement if the property being leased or rented has been inspected by a certified access specialist.

Looks like the wait for some relief from ADA litigation may continue...
