Glenn Reynolds: Time for Open-Source Legislation

Glenn's proposal on Open-Source Legislation would have allowed Ohio 2nd citizens (all citizens for that matter) to preemptively comment on the following provision in H.R. 2673:

SEC. 728. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Secretary shall consider the County of Lawrence, Ohio; the City of Havelock, North Carolina; the City of Portsmouth, Ohio; the City of Binghamton, New York; the Town of Vestal, New York; the City of Ithaca, New York; the City of Casa Grande, Arizona; the City of Clarksdale, Mississippi; the City of Coachella, California; the City of Salinas, California; the City of Watsonville, California; the City of Hollister, California; the Municipality of Carolina, Puerto Rico; and the City of Kinston, North Carolina, as meeting the eligibility requirements for loans and grants programs in the Rural Development mission area.
Former Congressman Rob Portman could have been singled out for shame, along with the other Congressman supporting the changes for their respective cities.

See Pork in Portsmouth Part 4 for the full story.
