Until late October 2014, I worked at the Cato Institute on projects related to Congressional transparency. In keeping with Wikipedia policy, I do not edit the Cato Institute's Wikipedia page or the articles about any of Cato's scholars. While I was working at Cato, I wrote a lot of Wikipedia articles about legislation - often on politically charged topics. I always did my best to keep any of my own biases out of it and I continue to do that. If you feel I have failed to do so on a particular article, please point it out to me on my talk page so we can discuss and fix it. I want to do my best to contribute to Wikipedia, which I love. It's been my primary source and first stop for information for years.
I got involved in writing Wikipedia articles about legislation after attending a WikimediaDC edit-a-thon about legislation. The result was Wikipedia:WikiProject United States Federal Government Legislative Data. I'd love to see more people get involved in editing articles about legislation on Wikipedia - I think it's important to have a place where people can read neutral information about legislation and Wikilinks are a great way for people to learn about the details or background of an issue. A bill provides funding for an agency of the federal government? Link to the agency being funded so people can read about what that agency does!
