Czech Parliament wastes paper?

MF Dnes brought an interesting insight of Czech Parliament meetings; it the times of computers and electronic documents, one law-making, which lasts two weeks, needs seven tons of paper, which costs 2,2 million czk. Still, this is only the paper used for law proposals for the M.P.

One member of parliament gets four thousand pages. If we piled the paper, it would make a tower 136 meters high. And most of it goes straight into a trashcan.

All the documents could be of course burned on cds, which would cost two-three thousans czk, the state could save millions. At least the MPs relize there is a problem they plan to solve. The leader of the parliament Miroslav Vlcek stated the law change will be ready in autumn.
