A new proposal has been introduced in Congress, H.R. 3356, to give business owners a brief period of time to make ADA fixes before they can be sued. Congressman Dan Lungren (R-Gold River), from the Sacramento region, recognizes how vulnerable small businesses are to an exploitative lawsuit, and wants to give business owners 120 days to get their facilities in compliance after they have been notified of alleged violations.

Check out the news story run by the Sacramento's KOVR-CBS here, which features CJAC Legislative Director Katherine Pettibone explaining how "drive-by lawsuits" are about financial gain rather than increasing access.
