Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability; Accessibility of Web Information and Services of State and Local Government Entities and Public Accommodations
The Department of Justice (Department) is considering revising the regulations implementing title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA or Act)
in order to establish requirements for making the goods, services, facilities, privileges, accommodations, or advantages offered by public accommodations
via the Internet, specifically at sites on the World Wide Web (Web), accessible to individuals with disabilities. The Department is also considering revising
the ADA´s title II regulation to establish requirements for making the services, programs, or activities offered by State and local governments to the
public via the Web accessible. The Department is issuing this advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) in order to solicit public comment on various
issues relating to the potential application of such requirements and to obtain background information for the regulatory assessment the Department must
prepare if it were to adopt requirements that are economically significant according to Executive Order 12866.
