It’s All About The Bill Language

By Alexander Russo — April 17, 2007 1 min read

In the end, it’s all about bill language, not summaries and talking points that can hide all sorts of things. Too bad I just hate reading it. Still, thanks to a friend for sending in this new legislative language from the Aspen Commission, which turns the February recommendations into 55 pages of subsections and clauses. By and large, the Aspen proposal is, along with last week’s EdTrust recommendations, the most far-reaching of the proposals that are out there. But I’m not sure if the Ed Trust stuff is in leg language yet -- the most I’ve seen from them is the 18 pager. I’m off to mail my tax extensions in -- let me know if there’s anything good in there. And if there’s any ease place to find the USDE’s leg language, let me know that, too.
