President Barack Obama signed the Plain Writing Act of 2010 into law on October 13, 2010. The law requires public communications by federal agencies to adhere to clear and concise “plain writing” principles.
The new law also requires federal agencies like the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) to post a compliance progress report for public viewing on their website. NCUA is pleased to report that 100% of the employees completed on-line, basic plain writing training before the May 1, 2012 deadline.
