The Open Government Act of 2005

Mark Tapscott has a post up about FOIA reform introduced by Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) and Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT). Every blogger should read this post and support the bill's passage. Transparency and accountability of government should be one issue that is truly bi-partisan. A world in which bloggers were as focused on government accountability as we are on media accountability would be a very good thing. More access to individual private citizens would greatly help this process, and also provide a chance for bloggers to perform some original reporting.

I agree, it would benefit all of us. As Cornyn said, "we need to see the good, the bad and the ugly". That's why I was not opposed to the FOIA which released the coffins coming back from Iraq. It's necessary in a democracy. Painful, but necessary.
