Rep. [crscore]Dave Brat[/crscore] of Virginia introduced a resolution Thursday that would require the government to create a master spreadsheet containing appropriations and budget information of the past 10 fiscal years.
The legislative proposal – which was cosponsored by Reps. [crscore]Justin Amash[/crscore] of Michigan, [crscore]Mo Brooks[/crscore] of Alabama, [crscore]Brian Babin[/crscore] of Texas, [crscore]Walter Jones[/crscore] of North Carolina and [crscore]Reid Ribble[/crscore] Wisconsin – calls for the Appropriations Committee to organize the information it already possesses on Congressional spending programs.
The online spreadsheet would “be kept up-to-date and provided on the public web site of the committee in a downloadable, searchable, and sortable format,” according to the resolution’s text.
It has since been referred to the House Committee on Rules for consideration.
