Rogue archivist Carl Malamud writes, "Public.Resource.Org is pleased to announce the launch of the 2014 Official Summer of Code!
We've selected 3 states -- Georgia, Idaho, and Mississippi -- and are raising funds
to have the Official Legal Codes sent down to the Internet Archive to be scanned and made
available to all. Your tax-deductible contribution can help make the law available to
the people! Find out more at: YesWeScan.Org/
The 2014 Official Summer of Code got started on March 15, 2014 when we sent notice out to
our specially selected jurisdictions, inviting their comments with a Proclamation of
Promulgation. Copies of this Request for Comment were also made available to federal government officials
and members of the mainstream media. We're still hoping these states will talk with us and
hold hearings on the important issue of making the official laws available to their citizens.
Joining our 3 special states this summer is our Nation's Capitol, the District of Columbia.
We've obtained all the Official Codes going back to 1940 and we're wanting to scan them
and put them all on-line. This effort dovetails nicely with the amazing effort volunteers
have done to create the unofficial DCcode.Org site
by making all the historical and current Official Codes available for them to link to. Kudos to DC's General
Counsel V. David Zvenyach for having supported and encouraged the DC Code effort!
