Greenhut Looks at New Disability Law

Steve Greenhut takes a look at a state proposal to help businesses in dealing with the Americans with Disabilities Act. This is one law by a Democrat that I'll support, although it doesn't go far enough. If I'm reading it right, it just allows businesses more time to make themselves ADA compliant and would base fines on actual "harm" rather than generic violations.

Greenhut mentions at the beginning a business in Sacramento sued for ADA non- compliance but it was in a building so old to make compliance extremely difficult, if not impossible. That business moved to a different building. As far as I'm concerned they shouldn't have had to. 

Older businesses like that should be exempt from the ADA. This proposal doesn't seem to address that.
