We are reaching out to you because of the Department of
Transportation’s (DOT) efforts to maintain the rights of travelers
with disabilities. We encourage you to join the conversation at
Regulation Room (http://regulationroom.org/) and help DOT get this new
regulation right. Regulation Room is part of Cornell University’s
e-Rulemaking Initiative. DOT has proposed new regulations that will:
•     Require airlines and airports to make check-in kiosks accessible
to travelers with disabilities; and,
•     Require airlines and travel agents to make their websites
accessible to individuals with disabilities.

Very few travelers with disabilities have commented on this important
proposal, but there is still a little time left to comment.
Many people who would benefit from the proposal don’t realize that DOT
needs to hear from people who agree with the proposed regulations, not
just those who disagree.
WE URGE YOU TO PARTICIPATE BEFORE TIME RUNS OUT.


Best,
