You may need to make new accommodations for disabled customers and employees if proposed regulations win approval.
The Access Board, an independent agency responsible for drafting ADA accessibility guidelines, issued its final proposal. The Justice Department is analyzing public comments before finalizing those proposed rules.
The Access Board's proposal would add new requirements for accessible parking, recreational facilities, hotel rooms and more. If enacted, audio-capable ATMs will become common.
