Comparing the cost of signing and implementing legislation

Legislator 1: “Let’s create a new law that creates an emergency phone number for health care emergencies, just like 911!”
Legislator 2: “Awesome, I’ve just drafted it, let’s use ‘011’!”
Legislator 3: “OK, it’s passed!”

Cost for legislators to sign their name to the bill: trivial.
Cost for compliance and implementation: priceless.
