Standards We Are Holding Ourselves To

For both existing pages and new development, we are striving to meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 at the AA level. We are following industry standards and best practices for web development in order to work towards these guidelines.

Our Strategy and Progress

We are currently remediating identified accessibility issues on existing pages, as well as ensuring that any new pages are compliant with WCAG 2.0 AA standards from the start. We have developed a strategy for this work, and will be documenting our progress.

On Premises

The Legislature is committed to complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act for building accessibility by ensuring that our buildings have accessible parking, entrances, elevators, restrooms, and seating in chambers and committee hearing rooms.
