D.C. 20503 75161"Y January 27, 1975 Mr. George L. Cary Legislative Counsel Central Intelligence Agency Washington, D.C. 20505 Dear Mr. Colby: The Washington Offices of the Council of State Governments, the National Governors' Conference, and the National Legisla- tive Conference, operating as a joint entity, have requested assistance in developing legislative proposals for considera- tion by the State legislatures in their 1975-76 sessions. For over thirty years this service has been requested of Federal agencies by the States. Coordination of this program is carried on by the Intergovern- mental Relations and Regional Operations Division in the Office of Management and Budget. Any proposals for State legislation which your agency may wish to have circulated among the State legislatures by this procedure should be forwarded to the Office of Management and Budget. This Office will request the comments of other interested Federal agencies, advise you of the relationship of your proposal to the program of the Presi- dent, and when appropriate, forward the idea to the Committee on Suggested State Legislation, Council of State Governments. The Council's Committee proposals will be circulated among State legislatures at their next sessions. In some instances, legislative proposals emanating from State Governments and elsewhere will be submitted to Federal agencies for appropriate comment through the Office of Management and Budget. In order to facilitate and expedite the procedure for bringing Federal concerns to the attention of State legislative bodies, your attention is invited to the Cumulative Index to Suggested State Legislation, 1941-1974, which replaces all previous index sources.

Your suggestions should be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget by March 1, 1975, to permit time for coordination with other Federal agencies and consideration by the Committee prior to its 1975 meeting. The legislation contained in the annual Program of Suggested State Legislation is an overall State Government document which represents the suggestions of the Committee to their colleagues in the State legislatures. In order for the Committee on Suggested State Legislation to consider the proposals adequately, wherever possible, each Proposal should be submitted in the form of a legislative draft if it is susceptible to this treatment. Otherwise, it should be submitted as a draft statement setting forth the problem and outlining approaches to its solution. We would appreciate receiving eight copies of the draft and each accompanying explanatory statement. (At a later date, it will be necessary to furnish copies of each proposal to the Council Committee for its consideration, and it would be advisable to retain the duplicating plates if they have been prepared.) In order to assure full attention for your suggestions, it is essential that the March 1, 1975 submittal date be observed. We are further informed that special arrangements will be made to. facilitate consideration of proposals contingent upon con- gressional action which may be taken after that date. These should be prepared by you and sent along as soon as possible. It would be helpful if you anticipate making such later pro- posals to inform us and give as much indication as possible of their substance. In the event that there are questions concerning this procedure, please communicate with Mr. Vincent Puritano of the Office of Management and Budget staff (395-1774).

Since 1941. Federal departments and agencies have had the privilege of submitting draft proposals to the Committee on Suggested State Legislation of the Council of State Governments. These suggestions from Federal agency sources are designed to make more effective Federal, programs and activities through facilitating State legislative proposals for adoption by. our State Legislatures. In this endeavor, therefore., we. are improving the entire Federa._t process and assisting in the delivery of services at all levels of government --- Federal, State, county, city and special district. The attached copy of the Style Manual was developed by the Council's Committee to .meet; the need for uniformity and standardization in presenting proposals to the Committee.

Although this means that style is arbi- trary, it is helpful. to establish some guidelines for copy submitted for publication in Suggested State Legislation. This should result in an internally consistent publication, expressing ideas in a concise and clear manner. A sample act follows the discussion below. Introductory Matter The first item in a draft proposal is its name. This is to be followed with a brief description stating why such an act is necessary, summarizing the contents of the act, and the person or group which drafted the act. Next is the title, enacting clause, etc. This should not be expanded since there is diversity among the States as to what must be contained in these elements. Standardized Sections Section 1 is the "Short Title" and states how the act may be cited and Section 2 concerns itself with definitions, if necessary. Often one finds a "Purpose Clause" at the beginning of an act. Although this clause may be necessary in some States, it is unnecessary for purposes of submission to Suggested State Legislation. The purpose of an act should be apparent from its content. Reasons for enactment of an act can be placed in the introductory matter for the reasons may become dated even though the act may still be vital. At the end of the act there are usually three sections: "Severability" (if needed), "Repeal," and "Effective Date." Form Every line of the act is numbered. The line numbers begin anew with each section. Every section has a title, in brackets, which pinpoints the subject of the section. One of the most significant items with so many variations is the enumeration of paragraphs within a section. If there is only one subsection to a section, it runs into the section heading and is not enumerated. If there are two or more subsections, each subsection begins on a new line and is enumerated. The enumerations for subsections, in order, are (a), (b), (c), etc. while the enumer- ations for paragraphs within a subsection are (a), (1), (i), (A). Often it is necessary in draft legislation to indicate a state alternative to the name of an agency, the number of members on a committee, punishment for an offense, etc. In these cases brackets are used instead of parentheses. To avoid an abundance of capitalization, which can prove distracting, most words are lower cased. For example, "director," "commissioner," or "agency" Approved For Release 2005/11/21 : CIA-RDP77M00144R000600120057-4 SADr ed For Release 2005/11/21 : CIA-RDP77M00144R000600.1200057-4 .. are not capitalized. Neither should the names of departments be capitalized except for specific ones established by the act. To say that "regulations of this act are enforced by the Department of Health" would not apply to all States. It would be better to say, "regulations of this act are enforced by the [depart- ment of health]." No footnotes are used. Instead, use is made of a "comment" paragraph which does not have line numbers and is placed at the end of the section or paragraph to which it applies. Unnecessary Words and Phrases Clarity is essential and excess verbiage eliminated in legislation. Some traps to be avoided are: Don't There is hereby created a Division of Accounting The term "disaster" shall mean Under the provisions of this act Until such time as the Director deems it necessary Paragraph (4) of subsection (c) of Section 25 No person shall be entitled to On or before June 15, 1974 In cases in which this occurs Give consideration to He shall receive compensation of $25,000 per year No person shall engage in said business of applying pesticides Do A Division of Accounting is established "Disaster" means Under this act Until the director considers it necessary Section 25(c)(4) No person shall Before June 16, 1974 When this occurs Consider His compensation is $25,000 a year No person shall apply pesticides It shall be incumbent upon the The director shall Director to Submission of Copy All copy should be typed, double spaced, on one side of the paper, with at least one inch margins all around.

The criminal justice system neither deters nor rehabilitates as effectively as possible. Decisions with respect to sentencing and treatment continue to be handicapped by lack of scientific experience. New treatment programs are developed haphazardly, if at all, and their relative effectiveness is rarely evaluated. The results are wasted lives, needless public expenditures, and increased crime. Dissatisfaction with existing correctional institutions has increased and the demand for reform has intensified, but reform to be meaning- ful must be based on facts.... The Purpose. The purpose of the suggested state legislation is to enable a State to facilitate research, including controlled experiments, in criminal sen- tencing and rehabilitation methods in order to determine the most effective and humane means of deterring crime and rehabilitating delinquent and criminal offenders.... This draft legislation was developed by the Criminal Sentencing Project of Yale Legislative Services. A comprehensive report on Criminal Rehabilitation, including a detailed commentary to the suggested legislation, can be obtained from Yale Legislative Services, Yale Law School, New Haven, Connecticut 06520. Suggested Legislation (Title, enacting clause, etc.) 1 Section 1. [Short Title.] This act may be cited as the [State] Criminal 2 Rehabilitation Research Act. 1 Section 2. [Definitions.] As used in this act: 2 (1) "Commission" means the Rehabilitation Research Commission. 3 (2) "Commissioner" means a member of the Rehabilitation Re- 4 search Commission. 5 (3) "Offender" means a person adjudicated delinquent or convicted 6 of a criminal offense under the laws and ordinances of the State and its 7 political subdivisions.
