[WEG] +1

Is everyone aware that staff performs and publishes an assessment of all policy proposals that make it onto the AC's docket? These
assessments often include potential problems with the text, questions regarding intent, and sometimes even suggestions for making
the text more clear / less likely to be misunderstood.
[WEG] yes, but as this is only regarding existing proposed policy, this still creates a potential gap. Staff's review of policy
implemented at each meeting is mainly focused on new policies (either pending or recently implemented). I think that there are times
when existing policy (or lack of a policy to provide guidance) would be important to highlight, instead of simply focusing on
reviewing the last round of passed policy and the pending policy work. That said, this may be more effective as an update to the
existing method of providing feedback rather than formalizing the ability for staff to propose policy.
