What Happened to the New Rules Project?

New Rules logoIt’s all still here. We have reorganized the and websites to better coordinate and publicize our work. All of the project’s activity, research, and information continues here, on the Institute for Local Self-Reliance’s new web site.

The New Rules Project’s primary focus areas — Energy, Banking, Broadband, Independent Business, and The Public Good — are now organized as Initiatives, under which you will find the full depth of news, research, publications, and policy models as before.

The project’s extensive collection of rules — policies, bills, regulations, and ordinances — has also been transferred here. These policy models can be found under the Rules Library, where you can filter your search by both level of government (local, state, etc.) and sector (agriculture, banking, etc.).  The rules for each Initiative can be found under that Initiative as well.

We hope you’ll find the new site a useful and easy-to-use resource. As always, we welcome your questions and feedback.
