Arkansas delegation wants website devoted to fed excesses

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (Arkansas News Bureau) – The Arkansas House delegation wants to make it easier for the public to track waste, fraud and abuse in the federal government ferreted out by government auditors and investigators.

The four Republicans are backing legislation that would require the government to set up a website where inspector general reports would be accessible to the public.

"These reports are difficult, at best, to locate and to understand. The Sunshine on Government Act will help the public more easily find and better understand these reports," said Rep. Rick Crawford, R-Jonesboro.

Crawford introduced the bill Monday with Reps. Tim Griffin, R-Little Rock, Tom Cotton, R-Dardanelle, and Steve Womack, R-Rogers, as co-sponsors.
