OpenTheGovernment.org, Coalition Partners, Urge Senate to Open CRS Reports

OpenTheGovernment.org and the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT) were joined by over 40 open government advocates in asking the Senate Rules Committee to hold public hearings on open government issues and to mark-up and pass S.R. 118, a resolution that would improve public access to reports by the Congressional Research Service (CRS). OpenTheGovernment.org’s report with CDT, " Show Us the Data: Most Wanted Federal Documents" identified CRS reports as the number one most desired government document by the public.
