HR 620 Passes

The House passed H.R. 620, the ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017, that was introduced by Reps. Ted Poe. (R-Texas), Scott Peters (D-Calif.), Ami Bera (D-Calif.), Ken Calvert (R-Calif.), Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) and Mike Conaway (R-Texas). 

“This bill is an important step forward in addressing other litigation threats," said CUNA President and CEO Jim Nussle. "It will ensure those protected by the ADA will continue to be protected but will take the right steps to curb predatory litigation that harms all consumers. CUNA is increasing our engagement with both legislators and the Department of Justice to see a solution that would protect credit unions and the members they serve from increasing threats of predatory litigation.”   

Legal threats under the American’s Disabilities Act have affected credit unions more recently, specifically regarding confusion over how the ADA applies to website accessibility.
