OPEN Government data Act poised to pass congress as part of NDAA

from Sunlight Foundation

Recently, the United States Senate quietly passed the OPEN Government Data Act as part of the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act. As the Data Coalition highlighted, the text of S.760, the Open, Public, Electronic and Necessary (OPEN) Government Data Act, was one of several amendments to the NDAA that moved. The public can view the final bill text on page 1013 of the Congressional Record online. Unless something unusual happens, we expect the bill to survive conference committee with the House and go on to the pen of the president. Should that happen, passage of open government data as the default public information disclosure of the United States of America will be the culmination of many years of work by Sunlight and our allies. more
