Long-Term Actions

319. Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) Accessibility Guidelines for 
Passenger Vessels

    E.O. 13771 Designation: Regulatory.
    Legal Authority: 42 U.S.C. 12204, Americans with Disabilities Act 
of 1990
    Abstract: This rulemaking would establish accessibility guidelines 
to ensure that newly constructed and altered passenger vessels covered 
by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) are accessible to and 
usable by individuals with disabilities. The U.S. Department of 
Transportation and U.S. Department of Justice are expected to adopt the 
guidelines as enforceable standards in separate rulemakings for the 
construction and alteration of passenger vessels covered by the ADA.

320. Accessibility Guidelines for Pedestrian Facilities in the Public 
Right-of-Way

    E.O. 13771 Designation: Regulatory.
    Legal Authority: 42 U.S.C. 12204, Americans With Disabilities Act; 
29 U.S.C. 792, Rehabilitation Act
    Abstract: This rulemaking would establish accessibility guidelines 
to ensure that sidewalks and pedestrian facilities in the public right-
of-way are accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities. A 
Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking consolidated this rulemaking 
with RIN 3014-AA41; accessibility guidelines for shared use paths 
(which are multi-use paths designed primarily for use by bicyclists and 
pedestrians--including persons with disabilities--for transportation 
and recreation purposes). The U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. 
Department of Transportation, and other Federal agencies are expected 
to adopt the accessibility guidelines for pedestrian facilities in the 
public right-of-way and for shared use paths, as enforceable standards 
in separate rulemakings for the construction and alteration of 
facilities covered by the Americans With Disabilities Act, section 504 
of the Rehabilitation Act, and the Architectural Barriers Act.
