Update on Access legislation

The ALA Washington Office has posted a candid update on various Access legislation, including two new pieces of information:

  • 21st Century Communications & Video Accessibility Act of 2010 – Requires Internet providers to make the internet accessible to the disabled.  HR 3101 passed in the House; the Senate companion bill S 3304 recently went to the full committee.
  • Federal Research Public Access Act  of 2009 (FRPAA) – To provide free, open access to federally-funded research.  A hearing is being held for HR 5037.
