Being inundated with political canvassers, political posters, and political commercials is bad enough; imagine the day they start canvassing on your computer.
A group called the Task Force on the Internet wants to make all pending Bills before the US Congress available on the Net. Congress has a counter-plan to publish Bills electronically after they are passed by the House and Senate and waiting for the Presidential signature.
The Task Force says that’s as useful as installing an alarm after a burglary. But their opponents in the US Congress say they are worried about unauthorised use of the system for personal messages and campaigning.
