Senator TG Guingona files Crowdsourcing Act of 2012


“It’s time for Democracy 2.0!” said Senator Teofisto “TG” Guingona III in his announcement of the filing of the Crowdsourcing Act of 2012—a bill which allows people to comment on pending bills via the Internet. The bill, which was filed yesterday, also gives the public access to copies of bills and measures that are pending before Congress.

Interestingly, Senator Guingona urges netizens to help him improve the first draft of the bill. He says in his official Facebook page: “However, I know that this first version of the bill is not yet perfect—and YOU can help improve it.”

The text of the entire bill can be read and downloaded at Senator Guingona encourages us all to send our comments, suggestions and position papers to with the subject: Crowdsourcing Act of 2012. You can also send him a tweet at @TGguingona using the hashtag #CrowdsourcingAct, or leave a comment at
