> Status Report
> April 28, 2004
> TC Goals
> The OASIS LegalXML Legislative Technical Committee is a community focused
> on the definition and use of XML and related technologies for legislative
> documents and information. It is focused on the needs of the Legislative
> community, setting the correct focus for the development of specifications
> and deliverables. There are at least three stakeholders groups in our
> community. The originators, distributors, and end users of legislative
> content all have needs and legitimate interests.
> This effort targets the support of these stakeholders when their needs
> critically, those needs that have near-term value are thoughtfully
> discussed and prioritized. If we do not coordinate our efforts we will end
> up competing and diluting the outcome.
> OASIS provides the framework and open methodology that can help us create
> standards that are trusted, adopted and used.
> Recent Activities
> The technical committee has been looking at the descriptive metadata for
> legislation focusing on the proper use of Dublin Core.
> It is preparing a survey, to be distributed shortly, to understand the
> current use of metadata, XML, and other structured markup systems (SGML,
> PDF) across the States and Federal governments.
> Identifying a set of potential new members of the community to be invited
> to goal setting activities. Prepare to reinforce the current members of
> the community in their involvement and in goal setting and planning.
> Completed Products
> None as of yet
> What you intend to accomplish during the next twelve months
> Continue the development of a usage model/content rules within the Dublin
> Core Initiative's vocabulary for the legislative content documents. Target
> date is TBD.
> To identify the goals and short-term specific needs of the legislative and
> regulatory community using a survey and active outreach followed by
> focused discussions with interested stakeholders in the community with a
> target of the end of July 2004
> To lay out a roadmap of needed standards and to focus on one standard for
> specific requirements definition / review and launch the first standards
> creation effort with a target of September 2004
> To plan for specific requirements definition / review for the first
> standard under an aggressive schedule.
