SB 1186 - DISABILITY ACCESS On September 19, 2012, Governor Brown signed into law Senate Bill 1186 which adds a State fee of $1.00 for any applicant for a business license or renewal.
EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2013 - this fee will be required from all new business licenses or renewals. The purpose of the fee is to provide a funding source for increased disability access and compliance with construction-related accessibility requirements and to develop educational resources for businesses in order to facilitate compliance with the federal and state disability laws.
Under federal and state law, compliance with disability access laws is a serious and significant responsibility that applies to all California building owners and tenants with buildings open to the public.
