Please Note: The information we have compiled is part of a developing body of data. It is the hope of our commission that over time this information will help to better inform the community about areas where disability access is lacking so that it can be addressed through the collaborative efforts of the business and disability communities and government. This information is not intended to suggest that the top ten access issues are the same in every city or county. It is reflective of only the data received by the commission from law firms in compliance to SB1186. We hope this information will help in the ongoing dialogue between the disability and business community to reduce such barriers in our state.
