ADA Waiting Period Bill Introduced

H.R. 777, a bill to amend the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), has been introduced by Representative Duncan Hunter (R-CA).  The bill would require people with disabilities to wait for a period of time before filing a discrimination lawsuit in order to give businesses, stores, restaurants, and other public accommodation time to correct the problem.  The Arc opposes this bill.  The ADA was passed over 20 years ago.  Businesses have had ample time to make their establishments accessible to people with disabilities.
