A bill our industry strongly supports 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 has been signed by Governor Brown.

AB 1148 (Steinorth; R-Rancho Cucamonga) passed its final vote in the Assembly 62-0 and went to the Governor two weeks ago. Click here to read the law.

The new law clarifies issues related to CASp inspection lease disclosures by defining the types of properties that must disclose. Basically, all properties are leased as a “public accommodation” must comply but certain properties that are not generally open to the public will be exempt.

We thank Governor Brown for signing this legislation as it will clear up an issue in law that was unclear and not working as it was intended.
