Congressman Webster’s Letter on ADA pool Accessibility regulations

After meeting with FRLA members, Congressman Daniel Webster composed and sent a letter to Ms. Allison Nichol, Chief of the Disability Rights Section of the Civil Rights Division at the U.S. Department of Justice.  In his Letter, Congressman Webster asked that the compliance deadline be extended to March 1, 2013, and that the regulations be revised to permit the use of portable pool lifts, account for the safety concerns associated with fixed pool lifts, and consider whether a different requirement is appropriate for public accommodations with several pools in close proximity to one another.  To read the entire letter please click here.
