I haven't commented on this before, but I just saw this piece over at the Captain's Quarters. The Coburn-Obama bill (S.2590), Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006, passed the Senate yesterday. This happened after the campaign to out the secret hold which had been placed on the bill, by Senator Stevens (R-Alaska), which had been prevented the Senate from voting on it. Hopefully the House will act on it and send it to the White House for signing.
More transparency in government is a good thing. Hopefully the administration, and those that follow it, will not abuse the classified information exception.
