Jewish disability advocates are concerned that a bill being considered by Congress will lead to increased bureaucracy and less access for the disabled.

The bill, known as HR 620, would roll back a portion of the Americans with Disabilities Act by including a provision requiring people with disabilities who encounter a barrier to access to submit a written notice to a property owner and observe a waiting period before suing. Disability advocates say that would lead to more negligence toward the disabled from business owners who are out of compliance with the ADA.
