      NECESSITY,

FUNCTION, AND CONFORMITY: KRS 344.190(14) requires the Kentucky Commission on

Human Rights to prescribe administrative regulations to effectuate the purposes

and provisions of the Kentucky Civil Rights Act. This administrative regulation

provides that all places of public accommodation be designed and constructed so

as to be readily accessible to and usable by persons with disabilities. In

addition, examinations or courses related to licensing or certification for

professional and trade purposes shall be accessible to persons with

disabilities.

 

      Section 1. 28

CFR Part 36, 56 FR 355.43, January 26, 1992, is adopted without change and

supplements Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which extends the

prohibitions against disabilities discrimination to privately operated public

accommodations and commercial facilities. It further requires that examinations

or courses related to licensing or certification for professional and trade

purposes be accessible to the disabled. This administrative regulation was

promulgated by the U.S. Department of Justice and is enforced by the Kentucky

Commission on Civil Rights.
