Tuesday, the House Oversight and Government Committee approved three bills to improve government transparency and accountability, including H.R. 3308, the "Taxpayer Transparency Act." H.R. 3308 would require federal agencies to alert the public that advertisements and educational materials are produced at taxpayer expense. Congressman Blake Farenthold urged support of H.R. 3308 during Tuesday's markup in the Oversight Committee.
