- Registration Closed
In this ever-changing federal environment, parks and recreation staffs wonder how the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has changed. What is the perspective of the US Attorney General regarding the ADA? Are new regulations being issued? Has enforcement ground to a halt? What plans exist, if any, for addressing fitness machine access and single-rider golf cars? What is the status of rulemaking on trails, campsites, beaches, and picnic areas? Are website standards ever going to be issued? What enforcement trends apply to making recreation programs accessible? These and other topics will be reviewed in this webinar.
