Support Transparency and Accountability in Government Spending
The Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (S. 2590), introduced by Senators Tom Coburn (R-OK), Barack Obama (D-IL), Thomas Carper (D-DE) and John McCain (R-AZ), creates an online public database that itemizes federal funding.
The bill ensures that the taxpayers will now know how their money is being spent. Every citizen in this country, after all, should have the right to know what organizations and activities are being funded with their hard-earned tax dollars.
The Senate Subcommitee on Federal Financial Management, chaired by Dr. Coburn, held a hearing on the merits of S. 2590. Click hear to read the findings of the hearing.
