Legislation To Improve Federal Government Communication With The Public
By requiring agencies to write in plain language, the legislation’s goal is to make the government more transparent and more efficient, allowing agencies to spend less time answering customer service questions and obtain better compliance.
Senators George Voinovich (R-Ohio), Tom Carper (D-Delaware), Carl Levin (D-Michigan), Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri), and Jon Tester (D-Montana) are cosponsors of the legislation. Representative Bruce Braley (D-Iowa) introduced companion legislation in the House of Representatives, H.R. 946.
