The Attorney General has signed a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) that aims to improve web and mobile application (app) access for people with disabilities and clarify how public entities—primarily state and local governments—can meet their existing ADA obligations as many of their activities shift online. The Department of Justice has sent the NPRM to the Federal Register for publication. The Department has published a press release about its proposed rule.

Once published, the proposed rule will be available for review and public comment on the Federal Register’s website at www.federalregister.gov. The Department will send a follow-up announcement once the Federal Register publishes the NPRM.

For more information on the ADA, please visit ADA.gov or call the toll-free ADA Information Line at 800-514-0301 (TTY 833-610-1264).
