Please forgive me if this has been posted already...
This bill would require
Federal financial assistance data, as well as data about government
contracts, to be available for public access through a searchable
database on the internet. The question I want to pose is how
transparent do you think this will be in regards to where this money is going?
Personally, I really don't think that we are going to learn any more
than we know now as far as where our money is going. Not to mention
that the definition of "classified information" is being broadened every
day. Seeing that so much money is going to projects deemed classified,
I really don't think anything in this database that will be created would be a huge eye-opener.
