The Plain Writing Act of 2010 was passed to help citizens understand federal government communication. Prior to the Act, government writing was filled with jargon, complex words, and hard-to-read sentences. This cost both the public and government time and money. Citizens missed out on benefits and failed to understand regulations, and government organizations spent unnecessary resources to enforce regulations and service customers.
The Act mandated writing that is clear, concise, and organized, and the federal plain language guidelines published shortly after further clarified the intent of the legislation. Following these guidelines will give citizens the critical information they need and save your organization time and resources.
This brand new Act follows the Plain Writing Act and the federal plain writing guidelines published shortly afterwards.
