ARL Condemns ADA Amendment That Would Impede Timely Information Access

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) is criticizing the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Education and Reform Act of 2017 (HR 620), which Congress plans to vote on today, Feb. 15. “This bill, if passed, would roll back the civil rights of 57 million Americans with disabilities,” says ARL. “The legislation would require a person who encounters an access barrier to send a written notice to the business owner and allow 60 days for an acknowledgement plus another 120 days for the business to make progress on rectifying the access barrier.” This requirement “would severely hamper equitable and timely access, which are core values of the library profession.”
