A bill our industry is strongly supporting that would continue the State’s reform of ADA laws in an effort to increase accessibility while decreasing frivolous lawsuits passed the Legislature on a bipartisan vote and is headed to the Governor’s Desk.

AB 1148 (Steinorth; R-Rancho Cucamonga) passed its final vote in the Assembly 62-0. AB 1148 would clarify issues related to CASp inspection lease disclosures by defining the types of properties that must disclose. Basically, all properties that will be leased as a public accommodation must comply but certain properties that are not open to the public will be exempt.

We will ask the Governor to sign the bill and will keep you posted.
