What's interesting about this petition is that
it's posted on a White House website aimed at giving Americans a voice in government.
It works like this:
- Collect 150 signatures in 30 days and the petition will be searchable on the whitehouse.gov.
- Collect 25,000 signatures and the White House will be required to respond to the petition.
The White House website states:
We created We the People because we want to hear from you. If a petition gets enough support, White House staff will review it, ensure it’s sent to the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response.What a great idea.
