Today, Congressman Ken Calvert (CA-42) introduced the ACCESS Act, H.R. 4099, legislation designed to help small businesses comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
“Small businesses and the jobs they create continue to be under siege by serial litigants, who manipulate well-meaning laws, like the ADA, just to line their own pockets,” said Rep. Calvert. “The ACCESS Act will protect small business owners and disabled Americans through critical reforms to the ADA that ensure it continues to protect access for the disabled and not abusive lawsuits. Small business owners want to comply with the ADA and give their customers access to their business; the ACCESS Act simply ensures they have time to make necessary improvements before being subjected to costly lawsuits.”
