An important hearing on proposed changes to the Americans with Disabilities Act will be broadcast live on the web Tuesday, starting at 9 a.m. EDT. While the all-day hearing will cover a wide range of issues, there are several critical topics specific to our industry that will be under discussion.
Our own Government Relations Manager Stephanie Thienel will be on the Hill to testify before the U.S. Department of Justice; her five-minute presentation on ADA issues regarding amusement parks and waterparks is scheduled to begin at 9:35 a.m. EDT.
Later that afternoon, IAAPA FEC Committee Chair Tim Sorge, owner/president of Swings-N-Things Family Fun Park outside Cleveland, Ohio, will provide testimony concerning ADA and miniature golf. Tim is scheduled to go live at 2:20 p.m. EDT.
We encourage you to follow the proceedings Tuesday, as the proposed ADA changes will have significant affects on many of our members throughout the industry.
