US Senate ethics bill amendments push for net-based transparency

Several amendments to the Senate’s Legislative Transparency and Accountability Act (S. 1) are pushing for more proceedings, video, transcripts, reports, and other Congressional activities to be made available on the Web, so FCW reports. This is part of the Democrat’s efforts to “clean up Congress” and create a more visible legislative process, in which all citizens can participate equally…or at least be informed about equally and easily.

If Congress really wanted to open itself up, it would offer real-time streaming audio and video of committees and hearings, and allow the public to ask questions as part of those proceedings. But this is certainly a step in the right direction. More, please!
