As part of the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Department of Justice has released 4 Advance Notices of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRMs) asking for public comment on whether and how to extend the ADA to cover:
- Web Information and Services
- Movie Captioning and Description
- Next Generation 9-1-1
- Equipment and Furniture
All 4 are intended to apply to both public and private environments. The ANPRMs will collect comments from the public, and will be followed by more steps leading to new regulations.
