U.S. House Passes Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Amendment

The U.S. House passed CCIM Institute supported legislation on February 15 proposing amendments to the ADA.  The ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017 (H.R. 620), passed by a vote of 225-192.  The legislation attempts to reduce “drive-by lawsuits” against business and property owners by creating a notice and cure period.  Under the bill, a potential plaintiff must first deliver written notice to an owner identifying the alleged barrier to access and give the owner 60 days to create a plan to remove the barrier, and another 60 days to implement the plan to remedy the alleged violation.  The bill moves on to the Senate this week.
