H.R. 3675: ADA Education and Reform Act of 2015 was sponsored by Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX).  H.R. 3675 was introduced to amend the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 to promote compliance through education, to clarify the requirements for demand letters, to provide for a notice and cure period before the commencement of a private civil action, and for other purposes. The committees assigned to this bill sent it to the United States House of Representatives for consideration on July 7, 2016.

Proponents of H.R 3765, argue that the ADA has become a tool of vexatious litigants who use it to extort money from well-meaning business owners who have made every attempt to comply with the law.

PAST and PRESENT LEADERSHIP of the National Council on Disability strongly advise against H.R. 3765 stating, “No business should be given what essentially amounts to a pass to continue to violate a law that was established more than a quarter-century ago to end the pervasive discrimination against people with disabilities that prevented us from going to movies, eating in restaurants, shopping in stores, going to museums and sporting events, and simply being an active part of our communities.”
