Government Transparency Bill Introduced

Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) introduced the Access to Congressionally Mandated Reports Act, a bipartisan bill “to make all reports written for Congress by federal agencies available to the public,” according to the press release. The act would mandate the creation of a single website that allows the public to search, sort, and download these reports. Quigley is founder and co-chair of the Bipartisan Transparency Caucus, which works on projects aiming to enact legislation that is focused on an open and accessible federal government.

“Public trust in government has reached historic lows, causing too many Americans to simply give up on Washington and the mission of government. The best way to rebuild the public’s trust and promote a more efficient and effective government is by furthering government accountability through increased transparency, and that’s precisely what the Access to Congressionally Mandated Reports Act does,” says Quigley. 

For more information, read the press release.
