US DOJ Weekly Digest Bulletin

The following is from the U.S. Department of Justice Weekly Digest Bulletin:

Justice Department Publishes Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Related to the ADA Amendments Act
The Justice Department has published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) intended to revise the Department's Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) title II and title III regulations to implement the requirements of the ADA Amendments Act of 2008. The comment period for the proposed rule closes on March 31, 2014. Congress passed the ADA Amendments Act in order to clarify the scope of the definition of disability under the ADA and to ensure that it would be easier for individuals seeking the protection of the ADA to establish that they have a disability that falls within the meaning of the statute.
To find out more about the ADA or this NPRM, call the Justice Department’s toll-free ADA Information Line at 800-514-0301 or 800-514-0383 (TDD), or access its ADA.gov website.

New Technical Assistance Publications Added to ADA.gov
The Justice Department announced today that it has published two new technical assistance documents to assist the public in understanding how the ADA applies to their unique circumstances.  "Wheelchairs, Mobility Aids, and Other Power-Driven Mobility Devices" provides guidance on the Department's 2010 regulations regarding the use of wheelchairs and mobility aids, as well as other types of less-traditional powered mobility devices.  "Effective Communication" provides guidance on the 2010 regulations provisions relating to communicating effectively with people who have vision, hearing, or speech disabilities.  Both are part of the Department's "ADA Requirements" publication series.
To find out more about the ADA, call the Justice Department’s toll-free ADA Information Line at 800-514-0301 or 800-514-0383 (TDD), or access its ADA.gov website.
