CRS, 26 other organizations urge CBO to adopt transparency reforms

The Coalition to Reduce Spending was proud to spearhead a bipartisan coalition letter alongside Demand Progress and 25 other organizational signatories, calling for the Congressional Budget Office to take several key steps to improve transparency.

The letter, which can be viewed in full here, suggests among other things that the CBO move toward standardizing URLs, improving search functionality, and providing bulk data for its scores. These types of reforms would be immensely valuable to fiscally conservative organizations as well as transparency and technology advocates.

The letter was delivered to the CBO this morning. The full signatories list is below.
