eRulemaking Workshop 2.0 Draft Report Page 1 DRAFT FOR REVIEW & COMMENT ONLY ( please do not cite this document) Acknowledgements This workshop report was made possible with a small grant for exploratory research from the National Science Foundation (NSF ). 1 Any opinions, findings and conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect those of the National Science Foundation. Dr. Jamie Callan graciously made six plenary presentations over the course of three days. These talks were vitally important for guiding workshop participants to think critically and knowledgeably about how human language technologies might help, or possibly hurt, the electronic rulemaking process. Also, special thanks go to the dozen invited speakers who made valuable presentations to help spur the small group discussions. They were: Bob Carlitz, Devin Certas, Neil Eisner, Rosemary Gunn, Jay LaGarde, Andrew Langer, Bruce Lundegren, Tom Mattzie, Christine Reed, Seth Schoen, Peter Strauss, and Jim Tozzi. This workshop also greatly benefited from the wide range of agency personnel and nongovernmental stakeholders who took the time to attend and actively participate in the sessions. The author also wishes to acknowledge the assistance of Dr. Lisa Thrane, who served as the moderator for half the focus groups and oversaw the recording and transcription of the focus group data. Mark Perry, Dmitri Shanin, and Jonah Katz served as effective recorders during the focus group sessions. Jonah Katz, Dawn Harms, and Karla Stevens were tireless and articulate advocates for wider stakeholder representation, as they made hundreds of phone calls during May 2004 to ensure that there would be enough participants. Karla Stevens and Dawn Harms provided timely and effective transcription service. Staff at the federal eRulemaking Initiative provided high level guidance as the workshop was being designed. The eRulemaking Initiative Director, Oscar Morales, and Deputy Director, John Moses, were especially welcome as lunch speakers each day. Kevin Landy, Minority Counsel for the Senate Government Affairs Committee, convened a useful stakeholder outreach meeting on Capitol Hill prior to the workshop and delivered well received remarks at lunch on June 3. Larry Brandt, Program Manager in the NSF’s Digital Government program, has been instrumental raising the profile of eRulemaking research for the last three years by supporting this effort and several other workshops, and we were grateful for his lunch remarks on June 2. Dr. Steven J. Balla, of The George Washington University School of Public Policy
