>                 The Federal Aviation Administration is seeking advice and input from service animal stakeholders, such as consumers and trainers, concerning Service Animal Relief Areas (SARAs) in airport terminals. On behalf of the National Association of Guide dog Users and the National Federation of the Blind, Merry Schoch and I will be participating in a SARA forum at the FAA headquarters in Washington, d.C. on Monday, March 3. In order to best represent your ideas and needs, I would like to have your input concerning the elements you believe should be incorporated in such a relief area. Keep in mind that this forum is an opportunity to offer suggestions on the ground floor before they are designed and implemented, so it is better to put such things in place in this stage than to make changes after the fact.

This is your opportunity to make a difference and all suggestions will be presented to the FAA and its engineers. Please send all comments, suggestions, and input to me no later than Saturday, March 1 by 4:00 p.m. You may email me at
