Open government hearing, June 7

The Committee on Government Operations and the Environment (Ward 3 CM Mary Cheh, chair) is holding a hearing on B18-777, "Open Government Act of 2010" on June 7 at 10:00 am in the JAWB.   For all those good government and transparency advocates out there, this is an opportunity to weigh in on what CM Cheh calls "a major reform measure of public accountability and transparency."

The bill covers changes to the District's FOIA legislation, disclosure laws (lobbyists and financial), and administrative procedure.   It would also establish a budget and spending transparency website.

The legislation under review on June 7, which has been amended with significant community input, is online.
