(March 6, 2012) — In the days and weeks either preceeding or following the planned enforcement date of any federal rule, you can count on a single federal attorney — or judge — to issue his interpretation of what Congress AND the regulatory agencies really meant when they passed the laws, rules and regulations. As a result, that single person’s decision becomes the new “law of the land” until it is overturned by a higher court or someone with greater authority.
This is the case with campground owners today. They have been told they must make their pools ADA compliant by installing permanent, fixed lift systems to assist handicapped people into and out of pools.
I wonder which campground will become the sacrificial lamb for the entire recreation industry — the one business severely fined to set an example to all the other campgrounds and RV parks?
