Welcome to TechCrunch's Project Madison, a utility for gathering the best ideas on pending federal legislation. On this platform, users can amend the language of actual bills being considered before Congress. Project Madison was originally designed for Congress by a Congressman, so we know that they're eager to adopt great ideas from the public (for more background info, read this post). In the menu above, you'll see a list of the available bills. On each page, the left hand column displays the text of the bill, and the right hand column displays suggestions from the community, which can be voted up or down by registered users. As Rep Darrell Issa's Digital Director, who helped design Madison once said, "everybody is an expert in something." We look forward to sharing your brilliant ideas.
