Reply to "ADA exemption for religious institutions"

California, when adopting the ADA as its base language for the 2013 CBC, chose to keep the requirements in for religious facilities. For those of you designing in California, 2013 California Building Code Section 11B-244 states: "Religious facilities shall be accessible in accordance with the provisions of this code. Where specific areas within religious facilities contain more than one use, each portion shall comply with the applicable requirements for that use."

I've had a few design professionals licensed in CA but based out of state submit plans for churches and funeral homes expecting, and insisting, that they need not be accessible.
