Records Management

Human Readable Bills

Require bills passed by Congress to have "human readable versions" accessible as part of the congressional record that outline all effects and intentions of the bill in simple, easily-understandable language. Tag statements with links to the provisions in the bill that supposedly match the statements.

 

For example, creative commons (creativecommons.org) maintains two versions of each of their license. One that describes basically the intent of the license (one page long) and one that describes the license in legalese.

 

Another way to think of this may be cliff notes.
