ASAN Comments on DOT’s Proposed Rule on Service Animals and Air Travel | Autistic Self Advocacy Network

The Autistic Self Advocacy Network 1  appreciates the opportunity to comment on the Department of Transportation’s proposed rule, 2  which revises Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA) regulations to exclude emotional support animals (ESAs) from recognition as service animals. The proposed rule additionally clarifies the law as it pertains to breed restrictions and what air carriers may request of people with disabilities who bring service animals onboard a flight. 3  ASAN supports the clarifications on breed restrictions and the rule’s requirement that psychiatric service animals be treated in the same manner as other service animals. ASAN opposes the provisions of the proposed rule pertaining to ESAs, limiting service animals to dogs, and the attestation and check-in requirements.
