TACO Takes Initiative on ADA Pool Rules
Texas Association of Campground Owners (TACO) has fielded many questions regarding the recent Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) updated rules, particularly as it relates to the new "pool regulations and accessibility."
TACO asked its attorney, Casey Erick, (http://www.mckamielaw.com/casey_erick.html), to review the new law (2010 Standards) and the previous law (1991 Standards) and issue a brief summary on how this would effect TACO members.
The two-page summary is available on the TACO member site under the Legislative / Industry Advocacy tab (http://tacomembers.com/docs/Condensed-ADA-Summary.pdf). There is also an expanded version of the review which is 10 pages in length, available by e-mailing Brian Schaeffer, TACO executive director AT email@example.com.
"This is one of the reasons TACO members and many state association members around the country look to their local association to protect their businesses and provide timely legislative input," Schaeffer said. "This happens to be a national issue but, it hit the states with little to no advance warning at the national level, thus creating a great deal of confusion. We think we have sorted that out."
