o HB 2207 will broaden the definition of people with disabilities to include all disabilities, not just those that are blind or visually impaired which is now the case under current state code. o HB 2207 will bring K-12 schools under the same directive (re: ICT accessibility) as higher education and state agencies thus allowing for more collaborative solutions throughout the Commonwealth. o HB 2207 asks each state entity to identify a Digital Accessibility Coordinator providing a contact for the dissemination of digital accessibility guidance and tools across the state. o HB 2207 identifies Section 508 as the digital accessibility standard thereby providing guidance when developing online job applications, academic online materials, and the development of digital tools for use by all Virginians. o HB 2207 will improve access to information and communications technology for all Virginians, including those with disabilities. This will not only lead to better educational outcomes for individuals with disabilities, but also increase opportunities for gainful employment.

HB1591 - We need more information from our govt. Not less. We need more oversight, not less. HB1688 - Please protect the children. HB2385 - Please make sure that the state agencies have oversight. Not all have the same competent watchers.
