Upcoming Announcements on the ADA


From the Justice for All Network:

The U.S. Department of Justice will propose new rules related to the act sometime in the next few months, spokeswoman Cynthia Magnuson said.

Proposed requirements being considered include:

* Visible workplace alarms, which would allow deaf and
hard-of-hearing employees to be made aware of an emergency

* Additional wheelchair-accessible seating at stadiums, theaters
and other entertainment venues, spread out at varying distances
from the stage or screen.

* One in every six accessible parking spaces to be van accessible,
up from one of eight.

* TTY, or text telephone, equipment in all buildings with four or
more public telephones.

* Wider doorways and entrances to galley kitchens, public
restrooms, hotel rooms and public housing.
