House Oversight Committee to Mark Up a Slew of Transparency Measures

by

This Wednesday, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is slated to markup a number of important transparency measures. The meeting, scheduled just a week after a they held a hearing dedicated to transparency, shows continued committment to concrete action to make the government more open during the 113th Congress.

Overall, the committee is scheduled to mark up 10 bills on Wednesday, including the Federal Advisory Committee Reform Act and the Presidential Library Donation Reform Act, both of which we have previously written in favor of. The committee will also consider the FOIA Oversight and Implementation Act of 2013, exciting legislation aimed at overhauling the FOIA, that was recently introduced by Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Ranking Member Elijah Cummings (D-MD).
