MA State Issue:
Architectural Access Board (AAB) - Massachusetts
Senate bill 1869 extends the jurisdiction of the Massachusetts Architectural Access Board (AAB) to make it coextensive with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The bill would update the AAB’s jurisdiction where it falls short of ADA standards (AAB does not cover employee-only spaces that are covered by ADA). This change also provides for federal certification of the AAB code, meaning building owners and designers can ensure federal compliance when meeting state regulations.
