About the Office
The State Americans with Disabilities Act Coordinator's Office (SADACO) was established in April 1992 by Governor Walter Hickel through Administrative Order 129. This order mandates SADACO to ensure that all executive branch agencies comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Responsibility for compliance is shared by each state agency with additional, specific responsibilities assigned to Department ADA Coordinators. SADACO's enforcement efforts promote awareness and accountability for state programs and services, reducing the number of complaints and adverse legal actions.
