legal XML update

A new committee has been formed to help created standards for the sharing of criminal record information between criminal justice agencies. The Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) has been working to develop standards in the use of XML for a wide range of industries. While some of those links are pretty technical, the implications behind this news is that the standards being developed would enable information that is being declassified more quickly under the Homeland Security Information Sharing Act of 2002 to be communicated faster with local law enforcement agencies.
