Description

This report analyzes the situation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), passed in 1991. Perlman says state and local governments face big problems "as they try to make public buildings accessible and provide services for citizens with disabilities of all kinds." "Many places clearly have not done what the law requires", Perlman adds. Cases regarding disability discrimination were adding up at the Justice Dept. when Perlman wrote the story. Perlman also reports the cost of complying with ADA hasn't taken any State or local governments into bankruptcy, as opposed to what those who were critical of the law had announced.
