DTC 206 - Summer 2019 (Prof. Ruth Gregory) - VR/AR legislation

Preliminaries

Key drafting questions to consider (From Quick Guide to Legislative Drafting):

  • What is the problem to be solved?
  • What is the scope of the policy—To whom or what does it apply?
  • Administration—Who will be responsible for carrying out the policy?
  • Enforcement—What if the policy is not followed?
  • Timing—When should the policy take effect?
  • How does the policy relate to existing law? [amendatory or freestanding]

Examples:

Congress.gov

Templates

I'm not happy with any of these, but they may give you bits you can cut and paste to get the right look (fonts, etc.). I will search for a better more realistic template! These are mainly from model congress sites.
