"All-Star" Drafting Team to Create New INDUCE Act (IICA) by Close of Business Tomorrow

Posted by Ernest Miller

According to Public Knowledge:

An all-star game of private sector legislative drafters will start at 10:30 tomorrow. There will be representatives from consumer electronics, Verizon, CDT, and others on our team and from the usual suspects on the other team. They are supposed to produce a draft by 4 p.m. That draft will then be, probably revised, to see if it can be marked up next week.
Why on God's green earth does Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) think this is a reasonable way to set internet innovation policy? There will apparently be no significant reflection or debate, just a rush job at the end of the session.

I hate to ruin it for you, but all legislation works like this. It's not a pretty business.
