Coburn, Obama Statement on Signing Of Transparency Database Bill

September 26, 2006

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) - U.S. Senators Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-OK) and Barack Obama (D-IL) released the following statement following a ceremony in which President Bush signed into law the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (S. 2590):

"This legislation marks a small but important step in the effort to change the culture in Washington, D.C. American taxpayers soon will be equipped with a significant tool that will make it much easier to hold elected officials accountable for the way taxpayer money is spent. The army of bloggers, editorialists and concerned citizens who worked diligently to see this bill pass deserve all the credit and praise today," the senators said.
