“Cornerstone of Accountability and Transparency”

by

Just going to quote Norm Ornstein on the 72 hour rule:

It is a model that Congress needs to follow with more fealty. The pledge to put bills online at least 72 hours before they are considered on the floor can be tough to fulfill when time pressures to act are great, and when there is a fear that putting hundreds or thousands of pages of a major bill online in advance can lead to selective quotes and disinformation campaigns. But the 72-hour principle is a cornerstone of accountability and transparency in Congress, and it needs to be recognized and followed as such.

You can help us establish a 72 hour rule here.
