Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability by Public Accommodations and in Commercial Facilities; Correction

Federal Register, June 30, 2008, Page 37055

Agency

Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division.

Action

Proposed rule; correction.

Summary

This document contains corrections to the proposed rule, published Tuesday, June 17, 2008, at 73 FR 34508, implementing the Americans with Disabilities Act. The proposed rule would revise Department of Justice regulations on nondiscrimination on the basis of disability by public accommodations and in commercial facilities. The correction consists of the addition of two appendices that were inadvertently omitted.

The proposed rule published on June 17, 2008, inadvertently omitted two documents: Appendix A, which addresses major issues in the proposed ADA Standards for Accessible Design and Appendix B, which explains the methodology underlying the Department’s regulatory impact analysis. Both appendices also respond to comments received in response to the Department of Justice’s Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) published on September 30, 2004, 69 FR 58768. This correction document will add the appendices to the appropriate places in the proposed rule. Corrections 28 CFR Part 36 [Corrected] 1. On page 34557, immediately after the amendment to § 36.608 redesignating that section as § 36.607, and before the signature of the Attorney General, add Appendix A and Appendix B.
