The adoption of the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 enacted by Congress and signed into law by President George H.W. Bush is a far reaching and wide ranging civil rights law of which prohibits discrimination based on disability.
The law has far reaching effects on employment (Title1), with how we build and utilize public entities and public transportation (Title II), and also how we build and utilize public accommodations and commercial facilities (Title III).
Virtually all un-retrofitted buildings and infrastructure built prior to 1990 do not meet the present code and are subject to comply with the guidelines. Even newer buildings struggle to meet the code due to implementation timetables, oversight or faulty construction.
Whether we believe the Act is an ominous burden to our society that will not provide the ROI or that in 100 years we find it as one of the greatest visionary accomplishments that brought our nation forward, in no doubt it will be subject to lively cocktail conversation.
