Made in America

I think you all are aware that I a m a Commissioner of the California Commission on Disabled Access.  A bill by Daryl Steinberg requires that the Commission get copies of Demand Letters and Court filings . We started tracking September 2012. From September to June 2013 we had 1152 filings. From July to Oct 13th we received another 1132. Most of these filings have been state lawsuits.

Clearly  it appears that  activity is increasing.

About 80% of  the filings are in Southern California and the top 5 suits and demand letters were around parking issues. For more information go to our website


I received an email from one of our members indicating the need for people in the US to buy American made things (see 4 minute video) but the point is that  if we purchased just  5% more  American made things it would create 1 million jobs. For example, if you made 100 purchases and 20 were  American made things  you would only need to purchase one more thing and you would be at increasing  your purchases by 5%.
