New Accessibility Law in Idaho
Disabled Idahoans are hoping to benefit from a new state law that goes into effect in July. It allows residents to file complaints with the Idaho Human Rights Commission over disabled access to businesses.
Before, the only way to file such a complaint was to go through the U.S. justice department.
Leslie Goddard, the director of the commission, says that agency often wasn't responsive.
She's hoping the new law will push more businesses into complying with the 15-year-old Americans with Disabilities Act.
