Art Rynearson ’71 Announces Publication of Legislative Drafting Step-by-Step

Art Rynearson ’71 recently announced the publication of his book Legislative Drafting Step-by-Step (Carolina Academic Press, 2013), in which he discusses the skills and best practices that he acquired in more than 26 years of drafting legislation in the US Senate's professional drafting office, the Office of the Legislative Counsel. When asked about how Hamilton helped in the creation of his book Rynearson replied, “Hamilton's influence on my book is even greater than my acquired writing skills.
