Steps Toward Accessibility
At their keynote speech Hack The Law in 2014, New York City Council Member Ben Kallos and San Francisco Supervisor Mark Farrell called on a nation of civic hackers to create a free and open source democracy platform for legislatures by next year.
The site will have five free and open source tools for:
- Drafting legislation
- Commenting on legislation
- Making it available over open API
- Opening up the law online
- Authenticating the law
