FROM:   Associate Reporter Louis B. Schwartz
RE:   Selected Issues Presented in the Accompanying Draft
DATE:   January 31, 1957
I have set forth below a selection of issues posed by the
enclosed material on Chapter 208.
A. Organization and Scope.
1. Does the tentative Table of Contents embody a sound
conception of scope and arrangement? E.g.r -
(a) Are we right in planning to go beyond strictly govern-
mental offenses in the present chapter, treating as
essintially the same or closely related problems:
counterfeiting money and forgery of commercial instru-
ments; alteration of ,government records and alteration
of records of banks, insurance companies, and other
private Corporations; bribery of public officials, of
political party officials, and of private business and
union officials?
(b) Are we right in proposing to incorporate into the
Model Penal Code all immoral offenses presently
found in special codes, e.g., governing elections?
(c) Are we too ambitious in hoping to systematize the law
of regulatory offenses? See proposed Section 208.42.
2. Would it be preferable to break up Section 208.10 into
separate sections dealing with bribery and coercion? Separate sec-
bions on official and political behavior?
