Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) issued the following statement Thursday (February 15) upon passage of H.R. 620, the ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017:

“Disabled individuals across America have rights to accommodation, but small businesses are often uneducated on those rights and how to comply with the law,” Westerman said. “The ADA Education and Reform Act enhances education for businesses and gives owners opportunities to correct accessibility issues before facing legal action. In the short term, this bill creates a framework for businesses to correct deficiencies. In the long term, it creates a more accessible world for all Americans. I was proud to co-sponsor this legislation.”
