Maybe a little check mark. It should be 30 days -- or 15 days -- but 60 days is better than no requirement at all. But there should be severe monetary and other penalties for failure to comply. Otherwise, the .gov will do as they always do with time constraints -- ignore it.

^^^ Point taken.

The bill would certainly be better if it included provisions penalizing bureaucratic laziness, indifference, or malice, but at least it takes the first step. Same goes for the reporting requirements; penalties would indisputably be better, but reports should at least make problems apparent.

Executive-branch abuse is certainly possible, but such abuse will be less defensible with the bill's provisions in place.
