The House of Representatives will vote on H.R. 620, the ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017 very soon. This bill is a threat to the rights and inclusion of people with disabilities across the country.
- The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires public places (like hotels, shops, and restaurants) to be accessible for people with disabilities. The ADA allows a person to sue business owners who do not comply with the law to ensure barriers to accessibility are eliminated.
- H.R. 620 would change the law to prohibit people with disabilities from suing a business that is in violation of the ADA unless they first: (1) give the business owner notice of the problem; and (2) wait months for the owner to begin addressing the problem, without any guarantee the issue will be resolved.
