CBS New York:
A system based on the White House’s “We The People” online petition platform is being considered for New York City.
The White House promises that any petition on the website that gets 100,000 signatures within 30 days will get a response.
Councilman James Vacca of the Bronx is sponsoring a bill to make a New York City version of the site.
Vacca believes such a system would help get more people involved with the issues facing the city.
