RECAP co-author Steve Schultze is having a busy month. Last week, he released a new paper called “Electronic Public Access Fees and the United States Federal Courts’ Budget: An Overview.” It provides a comprehensive overview of PACER’s budget. It explains how the courts decide how much to charge for PACER and how the money is spent. It’s an invaluable roadmap for anyone interested in understanding the debate over PACER’s future.

Today, Steve is at the Gov 2.0 Expo giving a talk about RECAP. If you’re at the expo as well, we hope you’re planning to go to the talk, which starts at 10:50. If not, you can see a pre-recorded version of his talk here:

Finally, next week Steve will start his new job as associate director of the Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton, which is the home of RECAP and its other co-authors. The rest of the RECAP team is excited that we’ll soon have Steve as a colleague as well as a co-author.
