Crowdsourcing of Guingona’s bill starts tomorrow




Last year, Sen. TG Guingona filed a Crowdsourcing bill which aims to better legislation by allowing the public to express their thoughts and sentiments on pending laws. The bill itself will be crowdsourced and will begin tomorrow.

To give you a recap, the Crowdsourcing Act which was filed back in October of 2012, seeks transparency and accountability in the process of law-making by allowing technology-enabled people to participate. It also allows the public to access copies of bills and measures pending before the Senate and the House of Representatives.

The bill believes that elected officials should not obtain the monopoly of the deciding power and that shared governance is key for laws to be more effective and the people to be more productive. “When people are allowed to participate, we have better laws.”

Those who want to take part can leave their comments regarding the bill on The Guingona Project website starting tomorrow (August 7) at 8 am. Crowdsourcing ends on August 21.

    this sounds good,pero duda pa rin ako.naklagay sa video na idodocument lahat ng opinion ng mga tao para pagbasehan din sa pagpapasa ng isang bill,panung lahat?as in lahat?o pipili ng random?kasi kung lahat imposible naman ata un,kung random naman edi parang wala ding nangyari kasi pag kapangyarihan ang namagitan jan im sure puro pabor sa kanila ang madodokumento na mga opinyon,tska pwede rin silang gumawa ng dummy social accounts at tulad nang nauna,gagamitin nila ang kapangyarihan nila para piliin ang mga account na un…..- OK NA SANA KASO PAG SA PILIPINAS IPAPATUPAD DI RIN OK

    OK sana basta malinis ang pag iimplement, huwag sana haluan ng katusuhan ng ibang representane ng mga tao, dahil alalahanin nila representative lang sila ng taong bayan at boses ng taong bayan ang dapat masunod at hindi ng personal nilang kagustuhan……Batas na pwedeng sipain ng tao kahit sinong Konggressman ang hindi sumusunod sa boses ng kanyang nasasakupan…….
