Here is some information that may be helpful for all of us interested in
having our voices heard on the importance of the ADA including the Internet.
You all are aware by now of the House Subcommittee Hearing on the ADA's
applicability to the Internet which will be held Wednesday, Feb. 9th at 1pm
in Wash D.C. (Rayburn House Office Bldg.).  I was interested in finding out
how I could have my comments accepted into the Congressional Record for this
important issue.
I called around and this is what I found out.

Comments WILL BE ACCEPTED into record if they are RECEIVED within 5
legislative days of the Hearing.  They should be addressed to:

Mr. Charles T. Canady
Chairman, Subcommittee on the Constitution
362 Ford House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515

If you are interested in any other information about the hearing or the
process the phone number for the Subcommittee is (202) 226-7680.  Paul
Taylor is the staff member assigned to this hearing.  I will hope many of
you will watch or tune into the hearings (assuming they are covered) and
WILL WRITE A LETTER expressing your comments.  These BECOME PART OF THE
PUBLIC RECORD, and as such are a very important vehicle for us all.  I think
we will all be very interested in Wednesday's proceedings.
