Update Accessibility Signage State-owned Facility

Concerning updated accessibility signage in a state-owned facility.
2020 Regular Session
Capital Construction
Bill Summary

Instead of the international symbol of accessibility icon of a character in a wheelchair, any required accessibility signage in a facility must depict an accessible icon with a more dynamic character who leans forward in the wheelchair and who shows a sense of movement. This requirement applies to the construction, acquisition, or substantial renovation of any facility that contains 5,000 or more gross square feet, undertaken on and after the date the state architect obtains approval from the United States department of justice that, on a statewide basis, the accessible icon provides equal or greater access to persons with disabilities and is thus an equivalent facilitation under the federal "Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990". The state architect is required, with assistance from the Colorado advisory council for persons with disabilities, to seek this approval no later than January 1, 2021.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
