On Friday, July 23, 2010, Attorney General Eric Holder signed final regulations revising the Department of Justice's ADA regulations, including its ADA Standards for Accessible Design. The revised regulations will amend the Department's Title II regulation, 28 C.F.R. Part 35, and the Title III regulation, 28 C.F.R. Part 36. The Department has prepared fact sheets identifying the major changes in the rules which are available at: http://www.ada.gov/regs2010/ADAregs2010.htm.
