On Tuesday, the Advisory Committee on Transparency held its inaugural round-table discussion entitled “Transparency Made Easy.” We recorded video of the presentations, which we are pleased to make available online. They are:
- Introductory Remarks by Daniel Schuman, Policy Counsel, the Sunlight Foundation (3 mins)
- Contractor Oversight by Scott Amey, General Counsel, Project on Government Oversight (10 mins)
- Access to Public Congressional Ethics Information by Daniel Schuman, Policy Counsel, the Sunlight Foundation (5 mins)
- Public Access to Federal Court Records by Harlan Yu, PhD Candidate, Princeton Center for Information Technology Policy (6 mins)
Congressional Transparency Caucus Co-Chair Rep. Mike Quigley stopped by and delivered welcoming remarks on the importance of transparency. We appreciate his stopping by, and both Rep. Quigley and Rep. Issa’s encouragement of the work of the Advisory Committee.
Video from the presentations is available below or at this link. (27 mins).
The presentations were followed by an off-the-record group discussion. Please email me with suggestions for topics and speakers for the next round-table discussion.
