Sunshine on Committees

The Republican Study Committee is proposing legislation that would bring more transparency to committee votes so that constituents can see how their member votes in committee. Mark-ups in committee are notoroiously hard for the public to find and is often how pork and earmarks are slipped into bills. Republican Leader John Boehner, Republican Whip Roy Blunt, and Deputy Republican Whip Eric Cantor are all co-sponsors, along with 72 other members who have joined on. It is time you encourage your Representative to sign on and bring some accountability back to the mark up process
