House Launches Personal Financial Disclosure Database


As required by the Honest Leadership and Open Government Act, the Clerk of the House launched an online database for current personal financical disclosures. The site only hosts PDF copies of these reports and is only searchable by member, not by anything they list on the reports. (I also had difficulty loading the PDF in the most recent version of Adobe Acrobat.) Kudos to the House for moving towards much greater transparency!

If you want to see how this information can be displayed in a more user-friendly and compelling way, check out the Open Secrets Financial Disclosure database.
