    3. Include two possible advantages and two possible disadvantages of the policy action.
    4. What level of government (federal or state, or possibly local) would primarily be responsible for implementation? Which agency or agencies would likely help implement?
    5. How would you propose the policy be evaluated?
    6. What possible courses of action (revisions) would likely be needed if the evaluation of the policy suggests that the proposed policy is not fulfilling its intended purpose?
