Essential Estrogen: Braley's 'Plain English' push succeeding

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

Congressman Bruce Braley's hope that government documents be written
in simple, easy-to-understand language is one step closer to becoming
a reality. The Plain Language in Government Communications Act, or HR
3548, was introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives by Braley
last fall and overcame its first major hurdle when it was passed
unanimously by the Subcommittee on Information Policy this week. The
bill will now move to the full House Oversight and Government Reform
Committee for consideration. "The subcommittee's passage of the Plain
Language Act is the first step in making government more accessible
and accountable to American taxpayers," said Braley, a Democrat who
represents Iowa's First District.
