I have posted a template  for the second draft subcommittee reports
to the wiki. It is easy to get lost in wiki text when working on a
table, so I have included place holder text. There is no requirement to
use the wiki, but it is a lot easier to go from the wiki to word
processor than vice-versa, and the wiki remains the best mechanism we
have for working transparently.
I also would like to take this opportunity to clarify what the Access
Board is looking for in that column for "economic impact." As discussed
on the call  with the subcommittee chairs a couple of weeks ago, from
a provision-by-provision perspective, we are asking only for a
qualitative approach to economic assessment. While we very much do need
the advisory committee's help with trying to calculate a "rough estimate
of total impact on the economy" we are NOT asking you to provide that
line-by-line in your recommendations!
For the purposes of these draft reports, if a reworded provision just
adds clarity, but doesn't alter intent, that provision probably has
negligible "economic impact".
I have adjusted the instructions on the wiki version of the template to
reflect this understanding.
