Supp. 2d 1 (D.D.C. 2008) (‘‘ACB v. Paulson’’) requiring the Department of the Treasury and BEP to ‘‘provide meaningful access to United States currency for blind and other visually impaired persons, which steps shall be completed, in connection with each denomination of currency, not later than the date when a redesign of that denomination is next approved by the Secretary of the Treasury . . . .’’ In compliance with the court’s order, BEP intends to meet with blind and visually impaired persons and request their feedback about tactile features that BEP is considering for possible incorporation into the next U.S. paper currency redesign.
