No More Secret IG Reports

One would hope that we could all get behind more transparency in our government (sans issues of national security).

Rep. Ron Kind, D-La Crosse, is introducing legislation in the House Wednesday that would bar inspectors general in the federal government from keeping from the public the findings of their investigations.

The bill is co-sponsored by every other House member from Wisconsin, a rare bipartisan feat in a typically polarized delegation that could help the bill’s chances for passage.

Kind said he is angry that the inspector general at the Veterans Affairs Department failed to release findings last year of an investigation into opiate prescriptions at the Tomah Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Wisconsin.
