Over 50 Organizations and Advocates Join OpenTheGovernment.org in Opposing Secrecy in Financial Industry Bailout Plan

OpenTheGovernment.org and over 50 open government organizations and advocates wrote to the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs and the House Committee on Finacial Services to oppose provisions of the financial industry bail out plan that would make any decisions by the Secretary of the Treasury non-reviewable by courts or administrative agencies. Further, public contracts associated with the proposal could be created outside of existing laws normally governing such actions. See the House and Senate letters.
