This committee was created in June 2003 to implement Section 207 of the
EGovernment Act of 2002 (Public Law 107-347, 44 U.S.C. Ch 36), with a
stated goal to "make it easier for all Americans to find and use the
government information and services they need." In fact, a sub-committee
called the "Web Content Standards Working Group" intends to ensure that
"U.S. Government websites will be the most citizen-centric and user
friendly in the world."


With a such an ambition, and the availability of public comment and
feedback mechanisms, this may be a unique opportunity to influence the
guidance regarding accessibility of content for all federal websites. I'd
urge you to make use of the opportunity, although I am in no way affiliated
with this project.
