Subject: [nfbwatlk] Change in Issue 3, the Air Carrier Technology Access Act

Fellow nfb Members: 
We have had a change in strategy for our Air Carrier Technology Access Act
initiative: after the fact sheets were printed, it was discovered that
Senator Tom Harkin had introduced S-556, a bill that would make in-flight
entertainment and purchase consoles accessible. Nfb has decided to ask
senators to cosponsor this bill while working with Senator Harkin's office
to add language that would require that apps such as flight reservation apps
be accessible. 
In the House, we will ask that Senator Harkin's language plus app
accessibility be introduced. For various reasons, we figure this will be
easier to get passed. 
Harkin's bill is shown below.
