If you agree, please check out this information provided by the Center for Plain Language. It describes proposed federal legislation in the United States.
Before listing actions you can take to support the legislation, the site provides this information:
Congressman Bruce Braley of Iowa introduced the Plain Regulations Act (HR 1557) on April 15, 2013. Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri introduced a companion bill in the Senate, S 807, on April 23. These bills would require that all new and substantially revised federal regulations be written in plain language. They will make it easier to understand regulations, which in turn will
- Increase the effectiveness of Federal regulatory programs
- Decrease the regulatory burden on the public
Help us inform Congress about the benefits that plain language regulations would bring to citizens and the government alike.For more information:
