Representative Mulvaney (SC-R) introduces bill that would make changes to the Americans with Disabilities Act

Representative Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) introduced H.R. 203, the Pool Safe Act, which would make changes to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The bill would change the current requirement that public entities and commercial facilities provide access to swimming pools by installing permanent swimming pool lifts. It also would make it acceptable under the ADA to provide portable pool lifts upon request even if installing a permanent lift were readily achievable. A similar bill was introduced during the past session of Congress but did not advance.
