Let’s make sure the Super Committee Isn’t Super Secret…

The wonderful Sunlight Foundation has launched a campaign to make sure that the Super Committee is transparent during its meetings and that the public is aware of all of its operations — in a timely manner.

The campaign includes a nifty transparency resources and public response webpage to provide a better understanding of the issue, Congress’ involvement and the grassroots campaign to open the Super Committee, complete with a great video explainer here.

So what are you waiting on? Go sign the petition! A total of over 5,230 signers from Sunlight, Change.org and Public Citizen, have signed on to a petition make sure the Super Committee is transparent.

Most importantly, a new bill calling for transparency in the Super Committee has been introduced and Sunlight is encouraging citizens to call their representatives to support this bill. To do so, please visit this page.
