Semi formal bodies to "vet" legal issues related to new technologies to maybe move the formal legislative process a little faster.
This is from website http://www.i-m.co/Kellm44/LegislativeReserve/about.html. How many times have we heard "there ought to be a law" or the government can't keep up with...? You name the issues. Changing technology, medical advances, changes in climate? Legislative Reserve provides an opportunity to address these issues.
See the website and see the proposal. I included a little from the site below. But there is a lot more there particularly in the Methodolgy tab. Is it possible for this to work? Would it be helpful?
Just for another tid bit from the site since i have space to do it. See below.
A fully functioning Legislative Reserve with Representatives from every state addressing issues that matter; Taking up issues with the purpose to address ethical, legal, or other concerns that other Legislative bodies do not or can not address; Provide rapidly debated, carefully scrutizied, politically vetted, and reasonably workable solutions to issues at the cutting edge of technology, etc.
And then this.
We believe this could become the model of how Legislative bodies would address those emerging ethical, legal, and other concerns bringing the legislative process into the 21 century while increasing the velocity for those new to the world issues and have them addressed as a society with limits or regulations as deemed appropriate.
The pictures at the top of the Methodology tab shows where we came from over the last two centuries. The pictures on the left show where we believe we should be in ten years.
We see the possibility that governments would recognize the value of such an institution and evenually provide funding for such a program.
Dare we suggest that something similar to the Legislative Reserve could one day replace our centuries old legislative process providing the means to govern the new, dynamic, and emerging American way?
