Ahead of a vote on the Federal Reserve Transparency Act (H.R. 24), introduced by Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:
“We’re glad to see that Rep. Massie and Chairman Chaffetz aren’t deterred by Senate Democrats, who, earlier this year, blocked legislation to audit the Federal Reserve, and the fear mongering of central bankers like Ben Bernanke and Janet Yellen. The Federal Reserve Transparency Act is one of the most important pieces of legislation working through Congress, and it will shine much needed light on the actions of the nation’s central bank, which holds incredible influence over the economy. We hope the committee passes the bill and House leadership schedules it for a floor vote very soon.”
