Johanns Introduces Legislation to Increase Senate Transparency

Senator Mike Johanns today joined 21 of his colleagues in introducing legislation that would increase transparency in the legislative process. The initiative would change Senate rules to require all legislative matters be made publicly available for 72 hours prior to being considered on the Senate floor or in committee. In addition, the cost of the legislation would also need to be posted on the Congressional Budget Office's website 72 hours prior to it being considered.
