State and Local Policy Initiatives

An Overview of Law & Policy for IT Accessibility

A resource for State and Municipal IT Policy makers

This is an original paper by Cynthia Waddell and Mark Urban. This report is intended as an introduction to the issue of electronic and information technology accessibility for governmental policy makers at the State and Local level.  The Authors do not intend for this to be a complete discussion of the complex issues involved, nor do they intend this resource to be the “final word” regarding the changing regulatory and technological environment. Finally, this report should not be construed as legal advice or opinion on specific facts since particular legal questions can best be answered by seeking the advice of counsel. Written June 8, 2000
