> Dear All,
>    I am pleased to announce that the National Association of Guide Dog 
> Users, a strong and proud division of the National Federation of the 
> Blind, has been awarded a grant from the NFB's Imagination Fund to develop 
> and implement a nationwide toll-free Education & Advocacy Hotline. This 
> hotline will provide information about the rights of disabled people to be 
> accompanied by service animals under state & federal laws. It is our goal 
> to provide summaries and full texts of each state statute, information 
> about the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Air Carrier Access Act, and 
> the Fair Housing Act, as well as specific guidance to particular 
> industries, such as health care facilities, taxicabs, restaurants, and 
> places of lodging. In addition, trained advocates will be available for 
> personal assistance. Our projection is to begin beta testing in january 
> and have the hotline fully functional by Spring 2010. As this initiative 
> unfolds, messages will be sent to the NAGDU list, so you will be the first 
> to know. If you have any comments or suggestions for specific features of 
> this hotline, please send these comments to me at
> President at nfb-nagdu.org
