Thanks for the feedback, Liam!

We had noted in previous discussions that if the Policy resources were updated, then we would want them high in the nav. If we update the nav within a week, we probably want to leave then down where they are since those resources are our of date.

However, there is a fair possibility that we'll update those resources in the next couple months, before we implement a significant redesign. Let's discuss how we want to handle this in EOWG today...

A policymaker needs to feel that the WAI site is for people like them, and we should not assume that they will expect to find policy resources if they look hard enough. I do not believe that there is a strong enough 'scent of information' at the top level of nav to make a policy-maker expect to find policy resources within the site nav.
