ADA is old hat now


I remember when the American Disability Act emerged 25 years ago. It signaled a sea change not equaled until the Y2k scare, which also provoked dire predictions of ruin because of projected costs. At U.S. 1 we reported on which restaurants had wheelchair-friendly bathrooms. We interviewed lawyers in the suddenly popular disability field.

Now accommodations are standard everywhere, no big deal. But according to the feds, accessibility is still an ongoing problem.
