This Working group is dedicated to discussing societal issues, determining their root causes, and responding with actionable proposals.

SCROLL DOWN to see links to on-going policy statement development. Note the dates to see where the current conversation is happening. And note which docs have been APPROVED BY GA. If a doc has not been approved, then it is DRAFT (in process).

GENERAL ISSUES (brainstorming and process discussion)

All documents created by this Working Group are DRAFT until it is approved by the GENERAL ASSEMBLY.


Reducing the Cost of Government

  • Senior Executive Service (has it outlived its usefulness and/or is it contributing to unnecessary expenditure)
  • Bring Congressional Benefits and ALL Gov't employees benefits in line with median worker
  • Stop spending on "roads to no where"


Page Notes

Move to rename: ditch "SPP," - adopt "Reforms": reforms is not deep enough, restructuring is better.
This avoids the extreme vagueness of 'ideas' and the over-complication of 'spp.' I will try to post a broad announcement on the google group to invite further discussion. [TF: yeah, but we're merging the facilitation/ideas group w/SPP, right?]

Sections to be addressed:
Strategies, Issues, Objectives, Finished Proposals, Tactics, Meeting Notes (and schedule), Background Info.

Who knows what this note is for? I can't figure it out. Can someone explain it, or if you authored, it erase it?
"Rights" or "Corrections" (C)*
