We've done the same thing in Canada.

 

I just completed a WCAG 2.0 conformance audit for the Canadian
Transportation Agency of all major Canadian transportation providers' web
sites.

Subject: DOT proposes WCAG 2.0 Level AA requirement for air travel websites

 

The Department of Transportation has proposed WCAG 2.0 Level AA requirement
for U.S. air travel related websites they govern.  This is part of the Air
Carrier Access Act (ACAA) Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (SNPRM)
issued Monday, news of which even made the White House!

There is a bunch of stuff in the SNPRM, so permit me to highlight the part
that is of most interest to this group:
