    Department of Justice (DOJ) Releases Proposed ADA Regulations
    On June 17, 2008, the DOJ published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register that revises its Americans with Disability Act (ADA) regulations and includes new ADA Standards for Accessible Design. In addition to the new standards, the regulations propose a safe harbor that allows small businesses to claim compliance with the rule’s barrier removal requirements if they spent 1% of gross revenue on barrier removal in the previous year. Comments are due August 18, 2008.
