Congressional Transparency Caucus

May 4, 2010

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the official launch of the Congressional Transparency Caucus. Led by Representatives Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Mike Quigley (D-IL), the Caucus will serve as a resource for Members of Congress on bipartisan open government initiatives. Their goal is to promote legislation that not only encourages, but requires federal information to be made freely accessible and easily searchable to the American public.

Additionally, our friends at the Sunlight Foundation have created an Advisory Committee to support the mission of the Caucus. They will provide education, information and advice to Members on transparency issues. Check out their new website here.

Unfortunately, a great deal of government spending goes without oversight once the money is out the Treasury's door. We commend Representatives Issa and Quigley for championing this effort and look forward to working with them as they strive for increased transparency and accountability in our federal government.

Call your Representative and ask them to join today!
