Coalition calls for improved access to congressionally-mandated reports
Lincoln joined a bipartisan coalition letter organized by Demand Progress in support of the Access to Congressionally Mandated Reports Act (ACMRA) sponsored by Sens. Rob Portman (R-Oh), Margaret Wood Hassan (D-NH), and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN). This legislation would take important steps towards improving the accessibility of public government information . The letter argues:
The ACMRA will establish a central repository of agency reports submitted to Congress and will track whether agencies have submitted required reports. This will improve Members of Congress’s access to the reports and ensure Congress knows when they become available.
Other signatories include FreedomWorks, the R Street Institute, the American Library Association, Americans for Prosperity, and many others.
