California Governor Signs Bill Giving Time For ADA Fixes
Gov. Jerry Brown is backing legislation that could cut the number of lawsuits against businesses over technical violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Democratic governor announced Tuesday that he signed SB269. The measure gives businesses with fewer than 50 employees time to fix violations after they're pointed out, among other protections. Republican Assemblywoman Kristin Olsen of Riverbank says business owners shouldn't spend time fighting "predatory lawsuits." (5/10)
