This outrageous requirement will force thousands of public pools to close simply because of the cost of compliance.
Here is an excerpt:
"In order to make swimming pools and spas accessible to Americans with Disabilities, all facilities were required to install permanent lifts in every public facility, at a cost of at least $6,000 each, by the end of May. Locations with multiple pools would be required to install a lift for every single pool on their property. Of course, each lift would need to have a qualified operator and lifeguard on duty.
Beyond the cost and hassle of getting the lifts installed, hotel insurance companies weren't even sure if they would be able to write internal policies for them. Needless to say, the risk of lowering a quadriplegic into water over his head presents a liability problem or two. The cost could be so great that most facilities would just eliminate their pools."
Yet another of the many reasons he -- and other Democrats -- should be soundly defeated at the ballot box.
