As we celebrate the 29th Anniversary of the ADA, AFB is pleased that Representatives Jim Langevin and Donald McEachin and Senator Tammy Duckworth have led the reintroduction of the Disabled Access Credit Expansion Act.

The bill increases the amount of the Disabled Access Credit, which helps businesses afford renovations to become more accessible to people with disabilities, expands the number of eligible businesses, and invests in programs that mediate ADA-related disputes and help individuals and businesses understand the ADA's requirements.

The ADA is one most important pieces of legislation ensuring the civil rights of people with disabilities, and AFB applauds these members of Congress for working to strengthen the law and make it easier for businesses to comply with their obligation to create a more accessible society.
