Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Accessibility of Web Information and Services of State and Local Government Entities

Accessibility of Web Information

The Department of Justice (Department) has published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) explaining how we propose updating the regulations for Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to lay out specific requirements for the accessibility of medical diagnostic equipment (MDE).

This NPRM proposes to adopt specific technical standards that state and local governments would have to follow to meet their existing obligations under Title II of the ADA for MDE accessibility. The NPRM asks the public for comments about this proposal.
