hey, you might recall that a lot of good groups, like porkbusters.org, got behind a bipartisan bill to show how some Federal money is spent.
Well, they're interested at Parliament as well, mentioned in a speech here
The Federal Funding Transparency and Accountability Act was signed into law this year on the back of bipartisan support. It will lead to the creation of a website that will allow any American citizen to search for exactly how federal money is being spent.
Nothing like that exists in Britain. But I hope it might. Tomorrow is the start of the new Parliamentary year.
In this session we will be introducing a Bill which would create a similar website over here. It would open up spending by the Treasury to scrutiny. Taxpayers in their own home could find out where their pounds are being spent.
They have a lot more here
