Funding transparency in Britain

Funding transparency in Britain

Shares

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
