Open Appropriations: Who Signed the Letter to Speaker Boehner?

Earlier this month, we praised Congressman Tom McClintock (R-CA) for his “serious and thoughtful attempt to hold his colleagues accountable” by calling attention to the need for an open appropriations process.  At the time, we said, “House Republicans cannot return to the ways of the Pelosi-led House, which is why we must maintain an open appropriations process.”

43 additional lawmakers agreed and signed Congressman McClintock’s letter, urging “a return to the regular order which was discarded during four years of Democrat control of the House.”  With one appropriation bill down, and 11 more to go, the importance of an open process cannot be understated.
