CREW Joins Coalition in Urging Congressional and Executive Support for DATA Act

CREW, along with a coalition of 17 other open government organizations, sent letters to the White House and Senate leaders stressing the importance of passing a strong version of the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA Act). The DATA Act would implement a number of government-wide spending data standards to allow for greater transparency of how the government spends tax dollars. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) plans to propose a weakened version of the legislation, which would essentially gut the DATA Act of key transparency standards.
