Small businesses in San Joaquin County and the rest of California remain vulnerable to thousands of dollars in penalty and legal fees for violating disability access rules since Gov. Brown’s recent veto of an Americans with Disabilities Act reform bill.
“It’s unbelievable,” Stockton business owner Jerry Brannon said over the news. “We need some help … so we can stop the extortion of money from small business.”
Senate Bill 251, authored by Sen. Richard Roth, D-Riverside, was among nine bills targeted by Brown because they provided state tax credits.
