Taxpayers for Common Sense endorses 72 Online rule

The non-partisan Taxpayers for Common Sense (TCS) endorsed the 72 Online concept in April 2006.

The organization endorsed following standard statement:
“We support the 72 Online rule to require generally that legislation and conference reports be posted on the Internet for 72 hours before floor consideration in Congress.”

Note: Endorsers of the 72 Online concept do not necessarily support or oppose any legislation, nor agree with the views of ReadtheBill.org or other endorsers on specific legislation or other matters.

What they say

“The 72 Online rule could save taxpayers billions of dollars and would complement earmark reform. Any earmark that cannot stand 72 hours of online sunshine should be dumped into the waste basket.”

–Jill Lancelot, President, Taxpayers for Common Sense

Taxpayers for Common Sense is an independent voice for American taxpayers. TCS is dedicated to cutting wasteful government spending and subsidies in order to achieve a responsible and efficient government that lives within its means.
