The Justice Department (DOJ) just officially announced in the federal government’s Unified Regulatory Agenda that it is again pushing back the target date for publishing its proposed website regulations for state/local governments and public accommodations to December 2014 and June 2015, respectively.  The delay is no surprise because DOJ did not meet the August 2014 target date that it had previously announced for the state/local government website proposed rule. In the meantime, DOJ continues to press its agenda of requiring businesses to make their websites accessible in the absence of any such regulations or a legally binding technical standard for website accessibility.
