From the office of Vice-Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers:
Tonight, I’m calling on Congress to publish all earmark requests on a single website before there’s a vote so that the American people can see how their money is being spent.” – President Obama, Jan. 27, 2010
In August 2009, Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rogers (R-WA) created Sunshine.gop.gov which does exactly what the President calls for.
“As Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference, one of my top priorities is to increase transparency and accountability in government,” said Congresswoman McMorris Rodgers. “That’s why I launched a website which enables citizens to track earmark requests by every member of Congress.”
“I am eager with the Obama Administration to ensure that all citizens have the tools they need to track their tax dollars and determine if those expenditures are worth it.”
