SECTION 101
Accessibility, rules and regulations
Executive (EXC) CHAPTER 18, ARTICLE 6
§ 101. Accessibility, rules and regulations. 1. The secretary of
state, in consultation with any other state agency he or she deems
necessary, shall promulgate any rules and regulations necessary to
remove the word "handicapped" from any signs or other means of
communication where such word appears.

2. The secretary of state, in consultation with any other state agency
he or she deems necessary, shall promulgate rules and regulations
necessary to require that wherever the current universal symbol of
access of a figure in a wheelchair appears, such symbol shall instead
depict a logo with a dynamic character leaning forward with a sense of
movement. Such logo shall be readily identifiable, simply designed with
no secondary meaning, and provide for equivalent facilitation and
accessibility as the current universal symbol of access. The provisions
of this subdivision shall only apply to any new signs being installed or
replaced on and after the effective date of this section.
