California ADA Reform Bill Passes Unanimously

Legislation strongly supported by the industry, authored by Senate Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg (D–Sacramento) and Sen. Bob Dutton (R–Rancho Cucamonga), to stop the seemingly unfettered issue of abusive Americans with Disability Act (ADA) lawsuits against small businesses in California, cleared the Senate Floor this week with unanimous bipartisan support of the members.

The bill, SB 1186, garnered a bipartisan 36–0 vote and is aimed to help California businesses comply with the requirements of the ADA without facing the threat of frivolous lawsuits.

Senator Dutton stated, “The issue of shakedown lawsuits is affecting every county in this state and the fact that we have gotten unanimous bipartisan support of this legislation as it moves forward is proof that the issue has caught the attention of the entire Senate. I look forward to working with Senator Steinberg in the weeks ahead in finalizing legislation that will put an end to these predatory lawsuits, while protecting access of the disabled community.”

BOMA California representatives are at the table and working very closely with both authors and other stakeholders.
