*SUMMARY*: The Department of Justice (Department) is issuing this Notice of
Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to amend its Americans with Disabilities Act
(ADA) regulations in order to incorporate the statutory changes to the ADA
set forth in the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADA Amendments Act or the
Act), which took effect on January 1, 2009. Congress enacted the ADA
Amendments Act in order to revise the ADA definition of "disability" and to
ensure that the definition is broadly construed and applied without
extensive analysis.

In this NPRM, the Department is proposing to add new sections to its title
II and title III ADA regulations at 28 CFR parts 35 and 36, respectively,
to provide detailed definitions of "disability" and to make consistent
changes in other sections of the regulations. The ADA Amendments Act
authorizes the Attorney General to issue regulations consistent with the
Act that implement the definitions of "disability" in sections 3 and 4 of
the Act, including the rules of construction set forth in section 3.

The Department invites written comments from members of the public on this
proposed rule.
