Chronicle of Higher Ed on Proposed ADA Regs

See this article, which begins:

As Congress considers a bill that would bolster the Americans With Disabilities Act, the Justice Department has proposed new regulations that would limit the accommodations universities and other entities must provide under the existing law.

The lengthy new regulations, which detail requirements for handicapped-accessible seating and qualifications for service animals, among other issues, are scheduled to be published today in the Federal Register.

The balance of the article discusses two significant changes that the regs would effect: (1) a reduction in the number of accessible seats that are required in assembly areas; and (2) limitations on the species of service animals (and an express refusal to cover emotional support animals).
