The 114th Congress has been monumental in advancing government transparency. From implementing the DATA Act and FOIA reform, to enhancing whistleblower protections and providing access to government records, much has been accomplished in the past two years. Join us as the Transparency Caucus welcomes a panel of speakers to discuss the progress this Congress has taken to address transparency issues, and outlines the challenges we continue to face as we work to bring greater transparency to the federal government in the 115th Congress.
 
The bipartisan Transparency Caucus serves as a resource for Members of Congress on bipartisan, open government initiatives. The caucus promotes legislation that requires federal information to be freely accessible, as well as advocates for new programs that support transparency.

Media should RSVP to Emily Hampsten in Rep. Quigley’s office.
