The Justice Department will soon be seeking comment on four proposed rules to establish accessibility requirements for websites, movies, equipment and furniture, and 911 call-taking technologies, Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday at an event commemorating the 15th anniversary of the American Association of People with Disabilities.
Holder spoke as part of the Justice Department’s week honoring the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, known as the ADA. He pledged “aggressive and appropriate” enforcement of the landmark disabilities law — both in communities and the department itself.
“Over the last two decades, the ADA has helped to revolutionize the conditions of and societal perceptions towards Americans with disabilities,” Holder said. “The AAPA leadership, membership and network of supporters have been essential to fulfilling the roles the ADA was developed to achieve.”
