Current Bill Summary


SB 932 - Beginning October 1, 2010, all members of the General Assembly shall disclose to his or her constituents through the member's internet website and regularly issued newsletters whether or not his or her capitol building office is accessible by wheelchair. Such notification shall also include directions on how a constituent who uses a wheelchair or has a mobility impairment may request in advance to obtain a private meeting with the member using the office accessibility protocol required in this act.

By October 1, 2010, the Chief Clerk of the House or the Office of the Secretary of the Senate, as the case may be, shall have in place an office accessibility protocol for members of the general assembly who do not have wheelchair accessible capitol building offices. Such protocol shall:

- Be used for instances when a constituent who uses a wheelchair or has a mobility impairment requests to have a meeting with the general assembly member in private; and

- Designate certain areas in the capitol that may be used for requests for private meetings regardless of whether or not a request has been made in advance by the constituent.
