Holding Politicians Accountable

84 notes

National Journal: 

"It’s going to be a little more difficult to ferret out which members of Congress are lavished with all-expenses-paid trips around the world after the House has quietly stripped away the requirement that such privately sponsored travel be included on lawmakers’ annual financial-disclosure forms.

"The move, made behind closed doors and without a public announcement by the House Ethics Committee, reverses more than three decades of precedent."
