Why am I asked to contribute to become an official cosponsor?

A:

Even though no contribution is required, we ask that you pledge at least two cents (0.02) in the form for several reasons.

The first is simply a matter of verification. Only real, eligible voters ought to take part in the crowdsourcing of U.S. legislation. While we do plan on having a variety of fully public options for participation, official cosponsors will be voting to approve or disapprove part or all of each reform bill.

Please note that all personal information provided will be kept strictly confidential and never shared without explicit permission by you.

The second reason is also why we ask that everyone contribute even a small amount in a single or monthly donation. Behavioral and brain sciences have taught us that when money is part of the interaction, people end up more engaged with the service. For example, most people do not sign up for a pay service like Netflix and never use it.
