ANN ARBOR, Mich., Nov. 19 (AP) — The University of Michigan on Monday proposed offering more wheelchair-accessible seating at its football stadium after a federal report said the facility violated the law.
If the university’s proposal is accepted, the number of wheelchair-accessible seats would increase to about 592 by the 2010 season. That includes 90 current seats, 207 seats as part of an expansion project and 295 additional seats.
The United States Department of Education said in a report last month that the university continued to violate a law requiring wheelchair accessibility at Michigan Stadium and risked losing millions in financial aid.
The university disagreed with the findings and said it was in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The university faces a federal lawsuit filed by the Michigan Paralyzed Veterans of America saying that the stadium is inaccessible.
