Congress: New ADA Website Guidance Letter

051618dailynews.png

Moments ago, Representatives Ted Budd (R-North Carolina) and Lou Correa (D-Anaheim) began circulating a letter to the Attorney General that calls for a solution to the mass volume of demand letters stemming from the lack of standards for website accessibility under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). For the next few weeks, Members of Congress will consider signing on to this letter, which is similar to a letter initiated last fall by Reps. Eric Swalwell (D-Livermore) and Ron DeSaintis (R-FL).

This letter comes after a group of credit union leaders met with Rep. Correa in April, where this issue was discussed. To view the letter, please click on the link below.

Also, in the news for Congress, next week, the House of Representatives will vote on S.2155, legislation that will provide regulatory relief for credit unions and other community-based lenders. Once this passes the House, the President is likely to sign this bill which contains one of the highest legislative priorities for credit unions.
