Description

WAGA-TV found newly built apartment complexes throughout the city are failing to meet federal Fair Housing standards for disabled renters. Testers who were wheelchair users found apartments with limited or no access, bathrooms and kitchens that were too small, doorways they couldn't pass through, and in some cases, outright discrimination. WAGA-TV also found dozens of buildings, including Georgia's capitol, that failed to meet federal ADA guidelines that were supposed to be met by 1991. (May 20, 21, 22, June 8, 22 and December 17, 1996)
