My apologies if you receive this twice.��

A revised bill is under way to mandate that NYC Government data be made available to public.��I hope list members will take a moment to review and comment on this latest attempt at transparency at the city level, a draft of which can be found in the attached Word doc.


From Jeffrey Baker:��

The New York City Council Committee on Technology is considering holding a hearing on Int. No. 29 (attached) in June, which is an amended version of Int. No. 991-A from last session.�� The Committee would like your feedback and suggestions for improving this bill.

The bill was drafted in order to address an issue with the prior version.�� The previous version of the bill could be read to require the government to constantly monitor all computer usage and to determine whether or not any data entered would be required to be put online.�� Obviously, such a requirement would be expensive and time consuming.�� This version of the bill seeks to more narrowly define exactly which data sets should be made available online, and seeks to avoid any requirement by the City to periodically review the files on individual personal computers, laptops and handheld devices.�� The bill accomplishes this largely by narrowly defining ���data,��� ���data set,��� and ���public data set.���

Please review the bill and let us know if there is any way we could improve it.

If you know anyone else who may be interested in reviewing the bill, please feel free to forward it to them.

If you have any questions about the bill, or would like to make comments, please contact me at��[address removed]��or at[masked]-9193.


Thank you,


Jeffrey Baker
