Irwin Berent, President of the Plain Writing Association, has completed a legislative history of the plain language movement, available here at the P.W.A.'s website. His research reviews the legislative process that led to passage of the Plain Writing Act and also examines the failed Senate and House bills of the previous years.
Other recent projects of the P.W.A. include a comparison of each plain language bill that has been proposed in the last 4 years; a list of links to blogs and other media that covered the plain language legislation from 2007 to 2010; and an overview of efforts to promote the use of plain-English software in government.
