Seyfarth reported on the California accessibility law 

"On October 14, 2017 California Governor Jerry Brown signed into lawAB 
which will create a new Government Code section 11546.7 and require, 
beginning July 1, 2019, state agencies and state entities to post on 
their website home pages a certification that the website complies with 
the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level AA, *or a subsequent 
version*, and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.'

I thought it was interesting that they planned ahead for a subsequent 
version.  That will be helpful to file away for the future, that 
language for legal acceptance of versions exists in the US.
