ADA BILL ADVANCES

SB 251 (Roth; D-Riverside) Civil Rights; Disability Access, a bill that we strenuously SUPPORT continues to move.  Among other reforms, this bill enacts a tax credit for businesses that make accessibility improvements.  The bill unanimously passed the Assembly Revenue and Taxation Committee and has also been passed by Assembly Appropriations.  The bill is currently awaiting action on the Assembly Floor.

Senator Roth has faced a lot of adversity as he has worked on this bill and has faced some unfair criticism from critics of reform.  We thank him for his resolve to address this issue in a bipartisan and level-headed manner.
