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!
