From the newly launched OpenSource.com
comes a pointer
to the Open College Textbook Act of 2009
. This bill, currently stuck in committee, calls for the adoption of openly licensed and freely distributed electronic textbooks. It is hoped that this will lower costs, level the playing field and even help restore overseas confidence in the U.S. educational system.
New to me, and as interesting, was the link to GovTrack
. I had no idea I could follow specific bills via RSS.
