An Outline of Provisions for a Uniform Barrier-Free Design Act.
The paper discusses components of a model Barrier-Free Design law which state legislatures might adopt to promote accessibility to and use of buildings by physically disabled persons. The model also suggests the creation of a board for barrier free design. Outlined are aspects of definitions, and detailed are the board's composition and terms of office, bylaws, duties, powers, and penalties. Differences between this model and a 1976 proposal by A. Farber are explained. The draft of the model act is presented. (CL)
