ADA Bill Passes Out of Committee
ADA graphicH.R. 620, the ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017, passed out of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee on September 7. The bill, which currently has 14 co-sponsors in the House from both sides of the aisle, would amend the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to curb the practice of so-called “drive-by” lawsuits. These lawsuits are often designed to result in quick financial settlements rather than to remedy the alleged ADA infraction or increase accessibility. H.R. 620 would create a “notice and cure” period of 120 days to allow building owners and other businesses the chance to remedy an accessibility issue before the commencement of litigation.

The advocacy work being done by BOMA local associations is a critical part of the progress on this and other important industry issues. BOMA members across the country are currently lobbying their members of Congress while they are in their home districts as part of the National Issues Conference: Local Edition. BOMA International advocacy staff also are continuing to work with Congress to push the bill forward to a vote on the House floor and to introduce similar legislation in the Senate.
