Don't draw up major remodeling or expansion plans until you've read through the government's new proposal to overhaul the access rules under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Example: More floor space will be required in public restrooms to allow wheelchairs to maneuver. The rules wouldn't require changes to existing facilities unless they're being remodeled. But new public buildings would have to meet the codes.

You can comment on the proposal until March 15. Final guidelines could take effect in 2001. To read the proposal, visit www.access-board.gov or call the U.S. Access Board at (800) 872-2253.
