Dear Colleague:

Each year federal agencies submit thousands of reports to Congress containing a wealth of information that enables the public to better understand how well federal agencies are (or are not) fulfilling their respective missions, from ensuring the safety of
our drugs and food supply, to protecting the environment, and monitoring the soundness of our financial institutions. Unfortunately, many of these reports simply sit collecting dust in the Committees to which they are delivered, or are posted in numerous places
on dozens of agency websites rarely to be seen.

My bill, the Access to Congressionally Mandated Reports Act, would create a single website where the public can easily search, sort and download all congressional reports from agencies.  This bill represents a common-sense, non-controversial way that will
go a long way to improving the institutional capacity of the legislative branch.

For more information or to become an original cosponsor, please contact Brooke Stuedell in my office at (202) 225-4061 or



Mike Quigley
