In the Federal Register of February 8, 2018, in FR Doc. 18-02597, on page 5647, in the second column, correct the "Matters to be Considered" caption to read:
MATTERS TO BE CONSIDERED:
The Council will receive agency updates on policy projects, finance, governance, and other business. The Council will receive an update on the work done to date for its 2018 Progress Report to Congress and the President, which this year will focus on monitoring and enforcement efforts at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the U.S. Access Board, and the U.S. Department of Labor. The Council will next release its latest report titled, "U.S. Foreign Policy and Disability 2017: Progress and Promise" with a summary of the report followed by a respondent panel. The Council will then revisit its policy project proposals from October 2017 in summaries of each proposal. Following this recap, the Council will hear from representatives from the U.S. Department of Justice Disability Rights Division, who have been asked to speak about recent ADA regulation rescissions as well as their work in the area of service animals. Following that presentation, the Council will receive public comments on which of the Council's proposed policy projects are of greatest priority to the disability community (including immigration; institutionalization following natural disasters; organ donation policies; a technology bill of rights; autonomous vehicle technology; guardianship due process concerns; and any others that may be raised during the course of the earlier summary of proposals).
Following the public comment, the Council will discuss and vote on the slate of projects it will move forward for external funding opportunities and internal work of staff.
