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 werenâ€™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.
