When will you publish what you plan to do next? Why is it taking so long?
We feel that the time invested is rewarded many times over by the quality of the results. It’s worth it to benefit from our collective ideas and experience, and to ensure that the outcomes are truly representative of the group.
We are investing time on outreach to ensure that we have broad participation from throughout our community. We are learning the processes to build a true and lasting consensus. Other groups have done that behind closed doors, and presented the results only when complete. We are doing it in public view, and so it may appear to take longer.
Lastly, we have been diverted for a significant percentage of our time to defending our First Amendment rights from the actions of the state of Tennessee, which has delayed the development of our proposals.
