"Let me Google That For You" will surely be the best senate bill ever

Google is no longer a logo or a brand name but it has become a common word of the English language and its use in everyday conversation has been falling into the mainstream. "Let me Google That For You" is a phrase which we are pretty sure you all might have heard and this especially comes from friends who tend to get annoyed at the senseless questions we pose at them. However, this will no longer be a joke or just another phrase.

Considering how popular Google has become as a search engine and has become an essential part of everyone's lives, it comes as no surprise that senators Tom Coburn (R-OK) and Claire McCaskill (D-MO) have introduced an act which goes by the title 'Let Me Google That For You Act of 2014'. This act was introduced last week in Senate and the aim of the passing of this bill to prioritize the use of web for finding information.

At the moment, all government organisations make use of the National Technical Information Service (NTIS) and cost taxpayers tons of cash. But it has been found that despite of the ability of the NTIS to get the job done, it might not be so efficient after all. Because the same task, i done with the help of Google, will take merely a few seconds. The approval of this bill would mean that the NTIS is eliminated and this is going to encourage people to trust on their web browsers.
