strengthened provisions covering access to information in
the Federal sector for people with disabilities. As amended,
Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act requires access to the
Federal government's electronic and information technology.
The law applied to all Federal agencies when they develop,
procure, maintain, or use electronic and information
