At www.natcoalitionliteracy.org you can take a look at the latest version of
the Omnibus Literacy Legislation concept paper developed by the National
Coalition for Literacy. To get to it, click on "Policy and Legislation" on
the home page, then on "Commitment Three," and then on "Omnibus Literacy
Last week the Public Policy Committee of the National Coalition for Literacy
met by conference call to consider 49 recommendations submitted from
literacy advocates throughout the country. Most of them were approved in one
form or another.
On December 13th, the National Coalition for Literacy will review and
hopefully approve the document at its quarterly meeting in Washington, D.C.
>From there, we'll ask a Senator or Congressperson to have the paper drawn up
as a piece of federal legislation. In the coming weeks, we'll help literacy
supporters become familiar with its provisions by highlighting key sections.
We'll also be targeting key potential cosponsors during this period.
Check out the web site for additional steps in the process and to download
the latest version of the concept paper. (You'll need the free program Adobe
Acrobat Reader, which you can get from www.adobe.com if you don't already
have it on your system.)
