    Meaning of the "draw"

    Hello!
    I'm reading the article "Emo music to be made illegal?" from Emo music to be made illegal? | The Sun |Showbiz|Music
    and I've stumbled upon the sentence:

    Legislation is currenting being drawn to regulate websites and ban emo and goth fashion in schools and government buildings.
    1. Why "currenting" not "currently"?
    2. "Drawn" means "used" or "prepared" or something else?

    Thank you!

    I think "currenting" must be a typo, it should be "currently".
    In this context "being drawn" means "being prepared".

    This was written by a lazy journalist. They probably mean:
    "Legislation is currently being drawn up to regulate websites ..."
