Swimming pool access law put on hold for two months

From KYPost.com:

WASHINGTON - A new law that would affect all public pools isn't starting as planned.

The Department of Justice postponed the requirement of installing lifts to accommodate disabled people. The law was passed in 2010 and was supposed to go into effect Thursday.

Hotel industry experts say there was widespread confusion about what types of lifts would be considered acceptable under the new law.

Questions also arose on whether each pool would be required to have its own lift, or if facilities could have one lift that is used in multiple pools.

Justice Department officials delayed the law for 60 days.
