Increasing Government Transparency and Accountability

Empower Americans, not bureaucrats.

Government has a problem—a big problem.

At all levels, as government has grown beyond its means, transparency and accountability have suffered.

But here’s the good news: Policymakers can rein in the bureaucratic overreach and expose the policies keeping Americans in the dark.

Federal, state, and local governments should never go unchecked. FGA’s solutions help put those checks in place.

Federal Accountability

  • Require state legislative approval of new federal funding.
  • Strengthen the review process for federal executive orders.

State and Local Accountability

  • Require state legislative approval for rules costing more than $1 million within five years.
  • Require governors to approve proposed regulations before they are submitted for public comment.
  • Require state legislative approval before localities can apply for high-dollar federal grants that come with strings attached.
